Growing up with horses gave me a natural confidence and understanding of equine behavior. As a lifelong horsewoman with a background in equine science, I was fascinated with equine cognition and worked with positive training methods that allowed the horse to have an opinion. I have developed a great passion and understanding of these gregarious prey animals.
One of the most profound facets of my journey took place in the four corners area of Colorado where I was fortunate to have the opportunity to study and observe wild horses in the Spring Creek Basin herd management area, Disappointment Valley. Observing these horses allows us to understand the natural behavior of family bonds and appreciate their social interactions. These horses are a symbol of the Old West America and the people dedicated to protecting them insure their natural free-roaming existence.
Working with the American Mustang became a passion and I created modified training techniques specifically for wild horses and wrote and published, "Overcoming the Fear Factor: The Guide for Training Wild Horses." This book is essentially a guide for understanding the nature of horses in regard to their innate fear. The book also addresses human fear.
As I became recognized as a body language, non-verbal expert, my journey with horses naturally took me to autism. I studied autism with experiential learning methods under Rupert Isaacson who created The Horse Boy Method, specifically for autism.
"The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty and freedom."
