"At Forever Faithful, my goals are to teach children to be the best rider that they can be, to connect with their horse on a spiritual level and strengthen their bond through confidence and positive influence. Riding horses isn’t just something we do, it’s a lifestyle, a privilege, and a gift that has been given to man by God. I plan on continuing my walk through Faith, my training, and hopefully I am able to work hard enough to make it to the NFR one day. I am on my way to getting my equine therapy license, I plan on using that to help children and adults with disabilities. I have been truly blessed with my endeavors in barrel racing and want to help and spread my knowledge to others who truly love the sport just as I do"

Teri Matter has had over 40 Years of experience with a variety of horses. Her horsemanship and Western riding skills helped her to achieve a position with Disneyland Paris in Paris France from 1992-2002. Performing with and training horses. She stayed with Disneyland Paris for ten years mostly performing the role of the legendary markswoman "Annie Oakley" in the reenactment of "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show". She continued to study Western Riding from many of the best Professional Rodeo Cowboys who also performed in the show and she owes most of her horsemanship skills to Jean Luis Wipliez who taught her the basics of dressage, English Riding and a small degree of stunt riding.
After returning to The United States, Teri studied horse training and handling under Lonnie Johnson and is now EAP certified.
In addition to her training and experiences as a rider, Teri attended the University of Texas and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Education.
