Katie began sharing her knowledge of horses in 1998 as a private riding instructor at Stevenson Stables in Mercer Island, WA. Later she became head instructor at the Northwest Therapeutic Riding Center in Bellingham, WA. This experience motivated her to earn a degree in Pre-Physical Therapy to better understand the power of horses and healing. This background knowledge allows Katie to pinpoint the exact physical needs of both horse and rider to better improve their ability to work together in harmony.
