Ann Myers, owner of the AQHA World Champion stallion, Zips Chocolate Chip (photo left), is no exception. Though she was born a city girl in Dallas, TX she always dreamed of having her own horse. She took riding lessons as a little girl and then at the age of 10 her father’s friend gave her the first, but definitely not the last, horse she would own.

Julie Skaifge_Black and White Shirt Julie Skaife has been working for Select Breeders Services in Maryland for over 8 years now. Her primary responsibility is management of the SBS Affiliate Laboratory Network. However, as Julie explains, “One of the great benefits of working for a small company is that you get the opportunity to participate in just about everything.
