Stephanie grew up in a small ranching town in western New Mexico where she learned to ride on the ranch horses. The only lesson she received was from her grandfather who told her, “Heels down, hold on.” She has refined her technique since then, and after volunteering at a local stable, she decided that she wanted to pursue therapeutic riding and began her journey toward becoming a PATH certified instructor. Stephanie completed most of her internship hours at Silver Lining, and was beyond thrilled when they asked her to stay. Stephanie lives in Goodyear with her husband, Michael, and her two kids, Kadence and Jesse.
