Shannon Ritter loves horses, loves to work hard and has plenty of respect from those close to her.

Ironmaidens, what do you think of Endorsement?
Congrats to Shannon. She worked hard as Elliott Walden's assistant and I was fortunate to meet her a few times. I'm thrilled that her hard work has payed off with such a spectacular win. Onward and upward!
