My journey with horses started when I was 10 years old in an old barn with a horse named Apache. On that day I fell in love with horses and it’s never left. Although I do love to be in the saddle, helping horses is my favorite part of the equine world. I love watching them become better than they were before. It’s now my goal.

If you want the quick version of why I picked up my first Masterson Method® book, it’s because I’m all about helping horses succeed. Specifically, I was looking for ways to help my heart horse succeed and be more comfortable while we were training. She had a bit of trouble moving comfortably, which was holding her back. She was working, but her muscles needed some TLC. After hearing advice from people I trusted, I decided to give bodywork a shot.

So, I turned to my home library, filled over the years with all things horse care related. Among the books was “Beyond Horse Massage”. I’d received it as a gift along with several other books and honestly, it had gone overlooked until that moment. But there it was. And at 15 years old, eager to help my horse, I grabbed it.

After reading it cover to cover, I stepped into her stall and tried out all the techniques. Five hours later (don’t worry, I’m quicker now), I walked out totally blown away by what I’d learned about her. The next day, she felt different to ride—like she wasn’t fighting her body the whole time. It was like she was gliding, and our communication was better too. I was hooked.

Falling in love with helping not just my horse but others too, I decided to pursue more education so I could do this as my career.  Turns out, there was a certification program, and you can guess the rest. Now, years later, after diving deep into all things Masterson Method, I’m an MMCP, thrilled to be helping other horses be their best selves. Because let’s face it, we all need some R&R sometimes.
