Teresa, known to most as “Tree”, started as a volunteer in 1999 with our therapeutic riding program. In 2016, she became an instructor assistant and earned her PATH Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor certification in 2017. Tree grew up riding horses with her family and showing American Saddlebred horses. Her love for horses passed down to her daughter and together they have spent many hours showing, rodeoing, and riding cutting horses. Tree continues to be a 4-H Leader and is an inspiration to many youth in our valley.
