I have been a horse lover all my life. In my youth I rode my horse throughout the hills of Southern California. 10 years ago, I retired in Salem and when I decided to volunteer, I was naturally drawn to Horses of Hope Oregon, where I could continue to do what I love. I am proud that after 5 years as a volunteer, I have now become a backup instructor for HOH. I spend the rest of my spare time riding Jake, my Mustang.
