I started working with horses while volunteering at a local therapeutic riding center in 2013. I found myself working with the horses there that no one else wanted to work with. The horses labeled either high strung or skittish by the others at the center. They were good horses, they just needed someone who would be calm and consistent when handling them. My mother also volunteered at the same riding center and introduced me to the Masterson Method® through a Christmas present. After using some of the techniques on some of the horses at the therapeutic riding center and getting results, I decided to go for additional training and for Masterson Method® certification.
