 As an adult, she worked in oil and gas reclamation after completing a Geology & Geography degree from the University of Regina.  In the fall of 2019 she was certified in Equine Assisted Learning by EAL Canada and since then has enjoyed spending her time bringing horses and humans together.  She worked at Living Hope Ranch in Maple Creek, SK as an Equine Team Member and taught with Kyra Londos Training Stables in Kelowna, BC.  She has worked with a variety of youth, from pre-school children to at-risk teenage girls.  One of her favourite parts about this career is seeing the changes in individuals as they spend time with the horses.

Spice

SPICE is the youngest of the herd, but she enjoys spending time with people, especially if she is receiving any amount of attention!  She excels in ground work sessions and is a great partner to those clients needing that extra challenge.

Cricket

CRICKET is the strong and silent type.  He is timid with a little bit of a stubborn streak.  However, he is genuine in his reactions and response to people, and acts as a gentle mirror and landing ground for client emotion.

Scout

SCOUT is a big little sweetheart!  He is so gentle with kids and adults: giving children confidence to do things by themselves, and providing nervous and fearful adults a safe place to connect.

Bear

BEAR is a family horse who is the go-to companion for any children or new participants that come to the farm.  He is very gentle with timid children and happily takes any challenges that students give him.

TEDDY is a well rounded go-to horse who is not only a top ranch working horse, but also very kind and respectful to students. Teddy is responsive to participants’ behaviours while also letting them know his own feelings.
