“My love of horses began when I was a child and I have always made it my goal to help horses at all levels of healing and health. As a young girl, I competed nationally in Hunt Seat, Western Pleasure and Pleasure Driving in the Morgan Horse world. As an adult, I showed in open competitions in Hunter Under Saddle, and finally settled into Dressage. I am currently following my dream of alternative health care through educating myself and others in order to help the horse and owner. I am very grateful for the people and horses that have been my teachers. Now I am able to do exactly what I have always wanted to do–Always be there to help”.
