Once she'd been volunteering for a while, she decided to pursue her Equine Specialist certification through EAGALA allowing her to be a certified team member in Equine Assisted Learning and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy sessions. After volunteering at the centre for three and a half years, she progressed to working at the centre full-time as an assistant instructor and fundraising coordinator. At this time, she also decided to pursue her therapeutic riding instructor certification through CanTRA as a basic therapeutic riding instructor.
Once the centre closed, she decided that she loved teaching too much to give it up. She resolved to strike out on her own and start teaching again in the fall of 2012, this time working for herself.
After finding a new home for her horse Noble, a barn to teach out of, and a lovely set of new and eager horses to use for lessons, The Equine Connection was born. The Equine Connection has grown to include 4 owned and 2 borrowed horses to our herd. Check them out under our horses!
