Professional Summary
Some people grow up with horses.  I found mine at age 51.  There's a lot to know about owning a horse and I had a lot to learn.  When I realized there were other people struggling for information about horses, I wanted to share my knowledge.  My goal is to educate and inspire people to have fun with their horses.  From my audio podcast, The Whoa Podcast About Horses and Horsemanship, to my YouTube channel about horses, I want to help people learn more about their horse.
