Equestrian Facilities Manager
Satori spent years interacting with horses before she got to ride, and didn’t miss any chance she had to be near them and learn everything she could. She was a dedicated student, helping with the care and training of her instructor’s horses well beyond the time she spent in dressage and jumper lessons. Her first horse was gifted to her because of all her hard work, he was green and had never been ridden, so she quickly learned the ins-and-outs of breaking a horse in and developing a working relationship with him.
After 8 years out of the horse world, she has returned through volunteer work at Cheekye Ranch, where working with and training rescued horses is a dream come true. She believes the bond we create with a horse comes from horsemanship techniques in groundwork, and knows the power of that bond; it has been one of the most therapeutic and fulfilling experiences in her life. She is excited to share from her years of experience and continue to grow with her students as we learn from the horses.
