Jonathan is originally from Cache Valley Utah where he grew up working on farms. He attended USU in animal science. He married his wife Maria in 2007 and they have two children, Dustin who is 10 years old and Lily who is 8. They spent the last 5 years living in Tonasket Washington, where Jonathan worked for Double R Ranch, a 70,000-acre cattle ranch. He loves working with horses and cattle and spends his free time with his family hunting, fishing and living an outdoor life. Swiftsure’s mission drew him here and he loves the fact that the horses are our facilitators of empowerment, strength, and healing.
