Founder & Director
As a horsewoman, former teacher, and mother of a special needs son, I was immediately drawn to the SpiritHorse program for its research based steps, one on one instruction, parent involvement, and affordability for our clients. We received our license in 2012 and have been providing quality equine assisted therapy ever since. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people and know that we make a difference in their lives as well.
I grew up all over the western half o the United States. I discovered a love for caring for horses and training donkeys in the summer of 2020. Now I want to help people gain an appreciation and understanding of horses and how therapeutic it is to be in close proximity to them.
Natalie has lived in California for nearly her entire life. A graduate from BYU-Idaho in Health Science, Natalie loves the outdoors, hiking, and horseback riding. Natalie has always appreciated the beauty of horses but when she personally experienced the power of equine therapy, it ignited her passion for horses and their ability to heal. Natalie's favorite thing about working at Rainshadow Ranch is being able to witness the miraculous changes of those who participate in the program.
