An avid learner she soaked in the knowledge and spent over a collective decade in 4H and FFA focusing on Equine Projects. She tried and excelled in disciplines ranging from Western Pleasure to Gymkhana to Trail and Hunter/Jumpers. From the age of 10 to 18, Natalie trained and competed as a Hunter/Jumper and that is still where her passion lies today. Her horse CC, is now 21 and they dabble in dressage to keep him limber and fit. His jumping days are behind him.
In college, Natalie studied Agriculture focusing on Animal Science and specifically equine science. She took classes in Equine Anatomy and Physiology and Equine Business Management. She continued to ride in college, working hard to keep her horse with her in Chico. She graduated from California State University Chico with a Bachelor’s of Science in Agricultural Communications in 2009.
Always passionate about horses and always learning Natalie fell into the Saddle Fitting profession and hasn’t looked back.
