About the Cover

Much has happened since we last featured Evie Doles in July of 2021 about following in her family’s footsteps. Nineteen-year-old Doles just graduated from Whitfield School in St. Louis, Missouri and she will attend SMU in Dallas in the fall to ride on their NCEA Equestrian Team.

To add to that, her horse, If Im Honest, affectionately known as “Moose” won the prestigious 2022 NSBA Horse of the Year award. This team is under the guidance of Chris and Melissa Jones. 

“A huge goal of mine was to win the All Around 15-18 Youth at the Congress, and I accomplished that last year. I clinched the Congress All Around title by winning the 15-18 Hunter Under Saddle for the second year in a row, which was another big goal. Another fond memory was in 2021, at the Championship in Ocala. Moose and I had an extremely competitive Horsemanship pattern and placed third. Up until that point, he had been green in the Horsemanship, and that show felt like the turning point for us.”

Evie’s goals for this year? “I’m trying not to think too much about this being my last youth year and to not put pressure on myself, but I would love to be top 5 in all of my classes at the Youth World Show and Congress this year. I know it’s ambitious, but I really want to accomplish that goal.”

Evie tells us that If Im Honest, who is by How Bout This Cowboy and bred by Leeman Farm, is the kindest horse ever. “He loves his cuddles and peppermint treats. He also loves sticking his tongue out…usually during Showmanship. He’s so kind and willing and has never once said ‘no’ to me.”

As far as working with Chris and Melissa Jones, “They are two of the hardest working people I know. Late nights, early mornings, they do it all. Their individual styles complement each other well, and that shows in their training. They’re basically my second parents. They push for their customers to be not only their best riding, but also to be the best people they can be.” 

Doles plans to major in Journalism, with a minor in Fashion Media at SMU. Her dream job is to be an international fashion marketer and to work in a different country. “I love experiencing different cultures and meeting new people. As for horses, I’ll continue to show Moose as an amateur.”

Through all of her success, she is able to keep the important things in perspective. “Sadly, our industry has experienced a lot of loss recently. I am reminded to appreciate and enjoy every moment I’m able to spend with Moose, doing what I love to do.” Click here to see more of Evie and Moose in the June issue of GoMag.
