Kirsten has been heavily involved in therapeutic horsemanship for the past 3 years, and is a PATH certified Instructor. She received notably high marks for her horsemanship skills in the evaluation process. In a therapeutic riding program, it is of prime importance that the instructors have strong horse-handling experience.
Kirsten got her first horse at the age of 4, and soon started her ongoing tutelage from professional trainers. She has been highly successful on the IAHLA and IFSHA circuits, competing on Andalusian and Friesian horses. She also competed on the L.A. chapter Dressage circuit. This experience benefits us when our clients attend horse competitions for those with disabilities.
