Stephanie's lifelong love of horses, and her gentle, yet firm way with children make her a wonderful instructor for children from all walks of life. Her love of horses began as a child. Stephanie got her first horse when she was 13 years old, and has spent many years riding, training and teaching.
Stephanie received her first CHA certification nearly twenty years ago. She has completed Level One, Level Two English and Level Three Western. From 2000-2002, she taught lessons and led trail rides for children at a horse camp in Washington. In 2002, Stephanie returned to Northern California where she continued to teach lessons and train horses. In 2011, Stephanie received her certification from PATH. She later worked at a therapeutic riding center in Central California, teaching lessons and training horses.
God has led and directed her life since she was a child. He has given Stephanie a passion to see children learn and grow physically, spiritually and emotionally. She is excited to see how God will continue her journey as part of Youthful Courage Stables.
