As the daughter of a Marine, Ann has lived in many places all over the world including Okinawa, Japan. Ann never really was involved with horses until she moved to Scarborough. When she started riding at age 12, she wondered why it had taken her so long to realize she loved horses! At age 14, she started volunteering every Sunday at the barn for the next two years. And when she finally turned 16, she became a staff member! You’ll usually see Ann feeding the horses, busily cleaning the barn, or even helping out with lessons on occasion. You might also find her riding her favorite horse, Okie! Ann is happiest during the summer, as a camp counselor for Horsemanship Camp.
