My dream was always to work with people and horses! Now, as a CHA certified instructor, I am able to make my, and other people's dreams, come true! My passion is working with beginning adults who perhaps always wanted to, but were never before able to pursue their dreams of owning their own horse or just enjoying horses in general.
