Carrie Russom Quraishi of Oak Point, Texas has been involved with horses the majority of her life, so, it is not surprising she has found a way to merge both of her passions for horses and law by forming her law practice, Quraishi Law Firm based in Frisco, Texas.
“I went to law school with the intention of pursuing equine law as a speciality,” says Quraishi, who is licensed to practice law by the State Bar of Texas. “I started showing quarter horses when I was 11 or 12 years old, so it has always been a big part of my life. I can’t imagine my life without horses. I had always heard the phrase, ‘Do what you love for a living, and you’ll never work a day in your life,’ and combining my interests and experience in both the legal industry and horse industry seemed like a perfect fit.”
As far as her horse showing experience, Quraishi started competing on the AQHA Show Circuit in the 11 and Under events. Over the years, Carrie has been fortunate to have several great horses during her show career. In 2003 she won the Amateur All Around High Point with We Be Blazin, and in 2004, the duo was named the All Around Amateur at the Congress. In 2005, she also showed Hot N Irish to a AQHA World Championship in Amateur Horsemanship and the Amateur All Around High Point.
