I am very grateful for the opportunity to merge three wonderful aspects of my life through the provision of equine assisted services. It has always been a passion in my life to work with and experience the world of horses. Through leadership of both an older brother and development of wonderful friendships with my adult daughters and son-in-laws, I have been consistently able to sustain and grow my involvement with these amazing animals. My wife, Barbara and I greatly enjoy the shared experiences of Little River Ranch, LLC with our children and grandchildren. We look forward to your involvement in the experiences of our equine assisted services.
