Born Feb. 12, (same birthday as Abraham Lincoln), Animal and Human rights advocate. I have a fabulous husband who is my soulmate and our teenage son (the chess addict). Teaching competitive Dog Training (since 1984) is a great joy for me. I learn from each student, human and dog. In 1988 and 1989 my K-9 soulmate (Golden Retriever) "Ruby" and I were fortunate to win the Gaines National Obedience Tournament, first in Las Vegas and then in Chicago . In the spring of 2010 I realized my life-long dream (thanks to my wonderful husband)!!!! I bought a Horse!!!! Sedona is a Friesian and a magnificent one at that!! She is the best ever!! Now I'm learning everything I can about Natural Horsemanship. I am so grateful to Chelsie Kallestad, Jennifer Terrill, and especially I owe so much to Esther & Gilles Barrandon of Petit galop/Granny Fox Farm for everything they do for Sedona and me. How fortunate I am to be taking lessons in Natural Horsemanship and Dressage with Gilles who I believe to be one of the most brilliant horseman ever!
