Biography: Kyra Evans

I grew up in Louisville, KY, just around the corner from Churchill Downs and still remember my first Derby bonnet, a wide-brimmed, pink number, covered in rose buds precariously perched on my small head it made me feel like a big girl. Perhaps it was being born and reared in the Blue Grass state that gave me my love of horses and the dream that some day, one day I'd get to work with these magnificent creatures though my family was anything but "horsey".

We moved to the San Francisco Bay Area when I was in grade school and for many years my only connection with horses was through the television during the annual Run for The Roses.

I worked part-time all through high school and then full time after graduation while attending Mills College, a private women's college in Oakland, CA. Between a full time job and a full time class load, editing the college newspaper and literary magazine I barely had time to sleep let alone begin living my dream equine dream.

After graduation, I went to work in the high-tech industry in corporate communications and marketing and it seemed my dream of living in the country, being a reporter for a small town newspaper, growing roses and having horses would never come true. But, as my mom says, "the world works in mysterious ways," and in 1989 I found myself living rural Northern California working for a small newspaper, in love with my soon-to-be husband, Michael, and for the first time, riding horses!

By 1992 I was a multi-state and national award winning journalist with a baby on the way. Our daughter, Olivia, was only four-months old when we took her back to my old Kentucky home to visit family, friends and Churchill Downs. I still think it was that early infant trip to the barns, track and Millionaire's Row that infected her with chronic "horse fever." By the time she was 7, there was no keeping this little girl away from horses and so I got a whole new job title Barn Mom! And soon thereafter Horse Show Mom!

So for the past nine years I have spent more time on the ground with grooming kit and apple fork then I have in the saddle and gone more miles in a truck with trailer than I have on hoof but, it has been the greatest privilege and pleasure of my life. From Olivia's first English equitation shows to her jumping shows and right on through her current reining shows, I have never missed a event.

Each show thrills me as does each and every award that she and my other "barn kids" win. From first place to 10th, these awards are treasured markers of accomplishment and good memories and so I am excited to be part of Showtime Awards, a company that understands celebrating the art of winning.
