Since her youth, Margie has been out to prove herself, whether it was playing football with the boys or getting on the biggest horses available to her. But as we learned, she was taking in as much knowledge along the way as possible. That means knowing how to work out to stay in competitive shape, listening to and being attentive when a horse has something to offer, and learning when to tune certain things out while focusing on others.

Her equestrian life has given her a multitude of highlights, and she spends time talking about some of the partners she’s shared that journey with. Royce factors in prominently, as Margie shares the joys, the lessons and the fun the duo have shared. It all comes together in this episode of Hitting Your Stride with Tracey Mitchell to offer a glimpse into the life of a living legend.
