My journey with horses helping humans started when I was a child. In the late 1970s my parents were going through a divorce and as the oldest of three children I was caught in the middle. I discovered that being around horses was a way for me to cope, to find relief from the hard parts of life. As an adult, I took up professional horse training and started using my own experiences with horses to help others.
