I moved to Williston Florida with Frank, my boyfriend and best friend, in January of 2014. We left our horse farm and the long harsh cold winters of Maine in hopes that the warmer weather might ease the discomfort of rheumatoid arthritis for Frank and thankfully, it has.
I have worked for Mending Fences since September 2015. At this time, I began to get acquainted with the equine members of the team.
Horses of been a daily part of my life since I was four years old when my mother bought me a not so sweet S hetland pony named, Goldie. That was over forty years ago, I have had at least one horse ever since.
I have spent many years making a living with horses, buying, selling, training, transporting, boarding and instructing. I became a PATH registered instructor in April 2001 and a certified PATH Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning in October 2015.I I also completed a B.A. in psychology in 2002.
I firmly believe that there is a powerful connection between horses and people. The horse helps us take a deeper look at yourself.
What I enjoy most about working at Mending Fences is serenity of the barn and horses and watching the clients become stronger as their bond with their horse deepens.
