Petrina is well known in the riding circles as “Lady P”, so I asked her how she got that name? She mentioned “My lady P name came a very long time ago; my niece could not pronounce my name so she would say aunt pee, aunt pee. As it went on people would say Hey P then when I started to ride it went to Lady P. I could not fit it on my license plate so I cut it to LDY P!!!!”
Ride ON Lady P!
