Hi everyone, my name is Caitlin Patty! I grew up in East Texas, where I attended All Saints Episcopal School. After graduating, I headed for College Station where I obtained a Master’s Degree in Agricultural Economics from the best University in the country, Texas A&M!
I absolutely loved college. I was part of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, and multiple organizations on campus. I enjoyed all of the social activities that came with being in college.
I enjoyed tailgating for football games, attending baseball and basketball games, and making our way down the infamous “North Gate”.
I met some of my lifelong friends while at A&M and I would do it all over again if I could!
Now to back-track a little, I grew up on a ranch in Bullard, then moved to Lindale when I was about 10. My parents have always had horses of some discipline. We’ve had everything from thoroughbred race horses to quarter horse halter horses! In 2009, I rode my first cutting horse. My dad had bought a horse at a local sale that said he was “cutting” bred and that intrigued us, having never heard of it before.
We found a local trainer where he let me work the horse. I was hooked! From there, we realized if I was going to actually be competitive, I was going to need a better horse. We found a trainer who told me he had a 9-year-old gelding in his barn that I could try. The first time I showed him, I won my class with a score I have only marked a handful of times since! It was meant to be... I had to have him!
That gelding carried me on to finish in the top 15 in the World standings in my class, two years in a row. I won Rookie of the Year in 2010, I qualified for National High School Rodeo Finals, and won the Eastern National Championship in my respective class. All are huge accomplishments that I never dreamed of being able to accomplish in my first couple years in the cutting industry. I am so thankful for my parents being so supportive of my love of cutting horses and allowing me travel to all of the cool places I have gone and continue to show throughout college!
If you couldn’t tell, I love being on the back of a horse, but I also enjoy doing just about anything outside.
I have two dogs who are pretty useless, but that’s okay with me!
I have an older brother who has two kids and I love getting to be their aunt!! I also love meeting new people. I went from a small school in a small town, to a new town and a huge school where I knew maybe 5 people!
Everyone has a story and I want to know it! I think that is part of what led to me to real estate. Buying or selling a house is a huge decision. There is usually a significant life change that is the reason behind buying or selling a house, whether good or bad. I want to make sure you are making the right choice and finding the perfect fit for your needs!
