Lori - Equine Specialist
Lori grew up riding quarter horses on her family's farm in Southern Illinois. She has owned, trained and loved her own horses since 1999. Aquiring several of her horses as foals, she was forced to gain more knowledge about horse behavior, psychology, training, and developing healthy relationships with her horses. She has studied and read the works of many of the early developers of what is now known as Natural Horsemanship. Thousands of hours and years later she still enjoys riding, hanging out with and training her horses. She has also attended professional trainings for EAP/EAL endorsed by Parelli, PATH Int., EAGALA, and Natural Lifemanship. Lori is currently pursuing certification as a Equine Specialist in Education and Mental Health through PATH International.
