I have loved animals and in particular horses my whole life. I’ve owned my own horses for the past 35 years. I’ve trained, shown and had lots of fun with them. I am passionate about my animals and helping others. I now have 5 mini horses all in training to become therapy horses. I am registered with Pet Partners with two of them. I am so excited to be part of Heart and Hooves and to share my horses with others. I am a proud Mother, wife and Grand Mother  of 2 wonderful girls. Click picture to contact.
