I was born loving horses and by high school was starting colts, showing in western classes and running barrels. After graduation, I worked for several trainer and also on a ranch that raised cattle and Quarter Horses. When I married, my husband and I rodeoed on weekends and I worked starting colts and training barrel horses. As our children got older, our focus became the kids’ school activities and sports and we quit competing with our horses and have had them for pleasure since then.
In 2002, I became a nationally certified massage therapist. Soon after that, I began taking classes in equine massage but never found a modality that was satisfying to me. Then a friend told me about Masterson Method®. I got the book and video and discovered the technique I’d been looking for and began the certification process.
Now I am delighted to have a method that not only improves performance but relieves stress and calms the horses’ minds. I love the bond I have with the horses in my practice and am delighted to have a way to give back to the animals who have so enriched my life.
