Greg was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, lived around horses most of his life, and continues to enjoy riding with his family who continue to own several horses in the area. Greg has worked as a mason and in related skilled trades for over 30 years, but in his free time, became a certified riding instructor in 2004 for a “for” profit horseback riding program in Alaska, later using those skills to benefit a different therapeutic riding program in Florida where he volunteered for a year before moving to Whidbey Island.
Greg continues to enjoy riding, as well as fishing, boating and camping. He says he always feels better when he’s actively participating in a program he values. And Greg has certainly done that with Equestrian Crossings. He started as a rider/student, and then moved into a volunteer where he helped students with grooming, helped as a side-walker for adaptive lessons, and now he is both a Member and on the EqX Board of Directors as the “Student & Family Liaison”. Greg’s experience and love of horses are a great value to EqX and its students.
