All my life I have loved horses and sought to learn all that I can about them.  It is my hope to share my passion for horses with you, so you too can enjoy these amazing creatures in the beautiful Virginia countryside.   Over the years, I have participated in eventing, horse showing, horse racing, pony club and fox hunting.  I have reschooled former race horses and have taught many people to ride (including my children).  I have taught therapeutic riding to people with a variety of challenges and am an Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning.    With the exception of 10 years that I spent working in the Thoroughbred racing and breeding industry in Kentucky, I have lived my entire life in Virginia.    There are lots of ways to be involved with horses in Virginia and I want to show you how.    Virginia truly is for horse lovers!
