Name of horse(s) you currently own or favorite Greystone Horse: At Greystone, I enjoy working with Neptune and Hobbit, though all of our equines are unique!
What do you like best about working at Greystone? I love seeing students succeed and work toward their goals with their equine partner. The lessons that horses teach us can be applied both inside and outside the arena in many areas of our lives, which is why the field of therapeutic riding is so captivating. I am impressed by the Greystone Manor facility and program, the dedicated staff and volunteers, and the variety of horses available to meet differing client needs.
A few interesting facts about yourself: While at Dickinson, I rode on the Equestrian Team that participated in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. When I pursued my PATH Instructor Certification, I received a scholarship through the EQUUS Foundation that funded my certification. I am also a vegetarian and have been one since I was 8 years old!
Family: My parents live in Bel Air, Maryland, and my sister lives in Columbia, South Carolina. My sister is also an equestrian and adopted a retired racehorse that she is retraining for dressage and jumping.
