Neva was born and raised in Indiana and now makes Wellington, Florida, one of the horse capitals of the world, her home. Introduced to the Masterson Method® by the founder of Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center, Neva attended the 2 day course and was hooked. During her studies she was lucky enough to have horses from every discipline and level of accomplishment on which to work. Whether a pony from a child’s lesson barn to a Grand Prix Dressage horse, Neva got her hands on all of them.
Retired from the stage after 50 years, Neva is thrilled to be fulfilling another life goal. A life long lover of all things animal, her days are filled with caring for horses, riding, and competing. Neva is also a PATH, International Certified Equine Specialist for Mental Health and Learning. She works with Veterans programs, high school groups, adults, and kids in need.
Neva services the Wellington, Lake Worth, Palm Beach and Jupiter equine communities. She has also traveled to Ocala and the west coast of Florida to treat horses in need. “I must be one of the luckiest people in the world to find a passion at this stage of my life that brings such joy and help to our equine friends.”
