Throughout the years, Sally has worked as a trail guide, stable hand (groom) for small and large riding stables along with racing and breeding farms. Sally first learned to care for horses at the age of 15. She answered an ad in the local paper for a groom on a Saddlebred racing farm. There she learned the importance of “basic horse care.” Her daily activities included feeding, mucking stalls using straw, swimming horses, harnessing horses, jogging horses, paddocking a horse for a race, wrapping legs and even the use of medication.
Her knowledge grew while she enjoyed riding lessons, being a trail guide and eventually buying her first horse at the age of 18. Every time Sally steps into a barn to care for a horse she relies on this knowledge to do the right thing for horses, no matter how long it takes. In 2000 Sally learned the art of Equine Massage. Her greatest talent is listening through her touch and locating where the horse is hurting and bringing relief. In 2013 Sally released her first published book “How to Pick a Pet for You and Your Family”
She is a member of Pet Sitters International and regularly cares for others’ horses and other animals.
She teaches the course: Horse Care Basics for Pet Sitters and Enthusiasts
