I am an author, speaker, podcaster, and YouTuber. As the founder of Pony Pros, I am proud to say that it has grown to be an internationally recognized horseback riding academy for kids and kids at heart. I grew up riding hunter/jumpers and today specialize in liberty horsemanship and colt starting with a Nuno Oliveira lineage dressage foundation. You can find me presenting at places like the Northwest Horse Expo and the High Desert Museum. I also volunteer as a breed inspector for Kiger Mustangs and teach live, online classes, like Social Studies through the lens of horses and equestrian workout classes. I have been an equine professional since 2003.
I am a survivor of childhood chronic illness and a widow, which has made me an expert on becoming the kind of person who can survive monstrous tragedy. With the same persistence and gentleness that I use to train a wild horse, I help others learn to live like someone left the gate open. Horses are my art medium - they are how I share my understanding of the world with others.
