Bio: My equestrian pursuits began in the 1970s. While on an afternoon drive with my parents we happened to pass by the Canton Equestrian Center then known as the Lazy S Ranch. What 9 year old girl would give up the chance to visit with some horses? In we drove.

Lessons started soon after, closer to home, at Fleetwood Farm on Route 53 in Pembroke, with Carl Catani, who now owns River Wind Farm. A few years later, not content with riding on the flat, I was directed up the street to Friars Gate Farm owned by Julie and Richard Ulrich. Here I was introduced to Show Jumping, Hunters and Dressage.

While attending Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts I was Co-Captain of the riding Team from 1981-1984.

In the years to follow I met Suzi and Jim Gornall and evented through Training Level riding in beautiful open space at Huntington Farm, Stoneleigh Burnham, Groton House and King Oak.

Lately, my instruction is of a more recreational nature. I incorporate some Dressage in all my lessons, jumping for the more adventurous students and an emphasis on harmony and balance with your equine partner.
