She is enthusiastic about helping people help their horses, and will continue to further her education in equine bodywork. Krista enjoys managing their 8-acre property in Grand Junction, Colorado. Her family includes an 'earless but fearless' rescue horse Pepe, handsome quarter horse Diego, rescue border collies Ella and Murphy, Beethoven the maine coon cat, and six free range egg laying chickens (whose eggs we can never find!).
Not only is Krista an equine health professional and enthusiast, she was also an accomplished young rider, selected to represent New Zealand and winning an international dressage competition in 1997 (Perth, Australia). She was the Reichenback Challenge Dressage National Champion in 1998.
