  • Mara Denny
    Vet Assistant

    I began riding at 6 and talked my parents into buying a horse at age 10.  I have shown English, Western, and Driving with everything from miniatures to 17h Thoroughbreds. A winding path has led me to a Bachelors in Ecology from The Evergreen State College, a Certification of Equine Massage and a herd of miniature horses.  Still not sure how these little horses took over my life but they are an adventure in training, breeding, and showing.
