Since childhood, Lise has had an interest in horses, taking advantage of any chance to take a lesson or spend time with horse related activities. It wasn't until adulthood that the opportunity for owning horses became part of her life.
For more than 20 years, she has participated in a variety of equine activities including distance riding competitions, trail riding and dressage lessons. She has also been involved with Equine Assisted Activity and Therapy (EAAT) programs for the last 10 years with experience in therapeutic riding and equine assisted coaching programs, as a riding instructor, volunteer or equine specialist. Her own horses have been an important part of creating a sense of balance in life over the years.
Horses have provided her with the opportunity to meet new people, travel and learn new skills. An injury to her endurance horse several years ago led to an interest in learning more about equine bodywork and complementary therapies. After attending a Masterson Beyond Horse Massage seminar several years ago, she was sure that she had found a unique and effective way of working with horses. The interaction with and response of the horse with the Masterson Method has been rewarding as she has seen improvement in physical and behavioral issues and more importantly improvement in her interactions and relationship with horses. Practicing the Masterson Method has increased her awareness of how " less is more" in many aspects of life with both horses and people.
