Eichstadt is an 18-under quarter horse world champion.  She earned that in 2011. Last year, Eichstadt finished as runner up.  “You have to set your sights on…for me what I do is to remember the great things,” says Eichstadt.  “I remember winning worlds. I remember winning my bigger shows and each accomplishment and how good it feels. That motivates me to work towards achieving that memory again.”
