What was your inspiration for working with horses? I’ve been passionate about horses my entire life. I grew up with them and I credit my horse Sprigg &. Pony Jerry for “saving” my emotional health. My mustang Jinlab now is my co-facilitator in this work.
What did you do prior to this work? I’ve been a therapist since the early 90’s and worked with many populations in various settings. I started my Equine Facilitated Therapy practice at a horse rescue and I am so excited to be returning my work to giving horses a new job and purpose.
What is your favorite horse related memory? My long rides when I was a teenager on my dear Sprigg. Telling her all my problems and just watching her ears listen to me. Never any advice, telling me what to do, just listening, moving my body in that gentle rocking motion, seeing the beauty around me. She is my inspiration of how to be a good therapist!
What do you enjoy doing after hours? Relaxing in my mountain home with my partner and 2 kitties. Hiking about the mountains, riding my horse and just hanging out with animals and friends.

What was your inspiration for working with horses? Horses are my passion and saving their beautiful lives has been my mission for many years now. My wife and I finally decided to make our dream of saving horses come true in 2018 when we opened Believe Ranch & Rescue in Longmont, Colorado.
What did you do prior to this? I dedicated my life to becoming a world-champion triathlete. After retiring, I transitioned into coaching, as well as international speaking engagements.
What’s your favorite horse-related memory? Doing a 50-mile endurance trail race with my amazing horse Savannah, just 3 months after rescuing and learning to ride her.
What do you enjoy doing after hours? Spending time with horses in nature and appreciating this amazing gift of life.

What inspired you to work with horses? My desire is to leave a legacy of positive impact on both humans and animals. My connection to animals as a young child was undeniable. Their innocence, and willingness to trust and love unconditionally is something all humans should aspire to!
What did you do in your prior life? I kept myself busy achieving things like: 6-time Iron Distance Champion, 6th fastest time in Iron distance history, 5-time sub-9 hour finishes at Iron Distance, earning over 25 Half-Iron Distance wins, and co-founding Team Sirius Tri Club and Believe Ranch & Rescue with my incredible wife, Siri Lindley.
How about a favorite horse-related memory? Saving our first horses from the slaughter pipeline. That day, I knew I might not be able to make an immediate impact on the thousands of horses shipped to slaughter, but I did know that I was making an immediate impact on the life of the one horse that I was able to save. I had a feeling that one day, we would make a real difference in millions of lives!
