"When I attended my first Eagala training I knew that this was the work I wanted to pursue and that Eagala was the right model for me.
During my professional career in the horse business, it has always been important for me to uphold the highest professional standards and I was drawn to the Eagala Model because of their professional standards.
Since beginning this work, I have seen amazing results for clients and have witnessed horses doing things I would never have imagined possible in the 45 years I have been working with them. It is important to me to acknowledge how much we owe our equine team members and how important it is to treat them ethically, always being aware of their well-being.
It is truly a privilege to work as an Eagala Model Equine Specialist and to continue my own personal growth and learning through the mentoring process."
