As the founder, Executive Director and one of the instructors at Equi-Ed it is my daily experience to come together with a group of volunteers, students, parents, caretakers and fellow staff that are the most positive, dedicated and motivated people I know.
Besides the physical benefits our incredible horses provide to our students, we also have a strong emphasis on life-long educational opportunities for everyone involved. Our affiliation with Santa Rosa Junior College Equine Science and Adapted Physical Education departments helps in the attainment of that part of our Mission statement.
Each of our students, from 4 through adulthood receive individualized instruction, provided by instructors whose credentials and experience surpass the basic nationally excepted standard. Lessons are designed to maximize independence while being stimulating, challenging and FUN! ;all the while maintaining the upmost emphasis on safety.
I love working and teaching at Equi-Ed; the combination of horses and people gives me inspiration and an energy that never wanes.
