Before coming to HYH in 2019, Leslie was a riding instructor/trainer and competed in three day eventing — mostly in her former home state of Colorado. She enjoys helping HYH fulfill its mission to move lives forward with the help of a horse, and witnessing how much our horses help our clients. As a child, Leslie was a typical horse loving girl whose only birthday wish every year was a pony. Being able to work with horses is still a dream come true every day. When not working with horses, she turns her attention to dogs and volunteers with Heart of a Border Collie Rescue and spends time training and hiking with her two Border Collies, Gavin and Boomer.
