Kristin Tara Horowitz (formerly McNamara) has been in the breed since 1992, starting with my first dog who she exhibited in conformation and junior handling. Since then, she’s participated in obedience, agility, rally, and stock trialling, as well. She’s spent most of my Aussie ownership years giving back to the community in the form of education online ( and, committee service, and junior handling judging.

She is proud to have been heavily involved in ASCA, the Aussie parent club, serving as past treasurer and member of its Board of Directors, along with a former member of the Strategic Planning , Breed Standard Review, DNA, education, and Junior committees. She also helps local rancher friends with cattle drives and sheep wrangling, when called to do so, putting her Animal Science coursework at Cal Poly, SLO whenever she can.

She runs a non-profit climbing club with two locations on the central coast of California, along with a sport events business. She oversees everything from customer service to contracts and vendor management, social media and other marketing outreach, along with long term business planning for both entities. She holds a BA and MA in English from Cal Poly, SLO.
