Volunteering in therapeutic riding (TR) has been my passion and life’s enrichment for over 35 years. Being a lifelong horse person, TR offers the perfect outlet to combine my love of horses and desire to give back to help others. Serving in multiple capacities over the years (leader, sidewalker, volunteer coordinator, trainer, and more), I became a PATH registered instructor in 2000. As an instructor, I partner with horses to help students achieve personal goals, promote independence, and have fun with their equine pals. Through the remarkable energy of horses, I have witnessed the strength, determination, and ability that lie within each individual.
I found my true home at Talisman where I assist as instructor, help with horse care and schooling, and immerse in equine healing and fun. Talisman provides a place of beauty, serenity, and community where we all experience the gifts of healing and growth through the extraordinary connection with horses. Come join us for happy trails at Talisman!
