Who is Dawn?
Farrier (Horseshoer), Horsewoman, Entrepreneur, Photographer, Writer.
Before Dawn was 20 she: set out alone for 10 days on her horse, Rebel, into the wilderness of the Los Padres National Forest (outside Santa Barbara); worked as horse wrangler/trail guide for the UCSB Recreation Department; moved to Enumclaw Washington – built an 18′ Sioux Indian Tipi – lived in her tipi in a cow pasture; and worked on a Dairy Farm — in the milking parlor, milking cows — taking care of “the Girls” (all 120 of them!).
In her 20’s Dawn: jumped out of a perfectly good airplane; got her Private Pilot license; started her own fashion business; flew 300 flight hours throughout Southern California; worked as freelance entrepreneur and business consultant in Silicon Valley; and bought her yearling Appaloosa/Running Quarter/Thoroughbred/Arab mare, Fanta, the foundation of her four generations of endurance and carriage horses.
Now she: rides and loves her four (Fanta-descendant) horses; trims and shoes horses in Southern California; and has completed 14 years of flying to Hawaii every 6 weeks to trim and shoe horses in Paradise! Yahoo!

What is a Soul Horse Ride?
Take a Ride Inside…
A Soul Horse Ride is not just a ride on a horse. We utilize Horses and Nature and Wildland Trails to open a window into the realm of the Divine. It’s a healing place. An inspirational space.
The Soul Horse Ride experience is crafted to allow you to break out of your preconceived confines and reach for higher insights, higher goals. It works as a catalyst to jumpstart your creative process – to re-awaken your relationship with Life – to activate and liberate your soul!
Ride along with me and my four generations of home-bred, home-raised horses.
Your journey awaits you – Pony Up!
