TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Saturday, Danae Patterson showed off her horse training and riding skills. Three different teams competed and Patterson brought home two gold
medals after winning first place in two different events.

We first introduced you to the 22-year-old Friday night as she invited the public to attend her Special Olympics horse show. Patterson told us how she would be competing on her horse Daisy and how she's already won some medals.

This was only the second time she has competed in a Special Olympics horse show and the first time she was able to compete with Daisy the horse.

Patterson says she's hoping her next competition will be a beauty pageant.
