Sue has danced with horses since she was three years old. She and her first horse jumped their way through south Florida shows. There have been 20 horses in Sue’s life, presently nine, all who have lived with the promise to be together until death parts them. Every horse has taught her a part of her collective knowledge, which allowed her, with farrier Stacy Henson, to invent and patent Easy’s Slipper® A lifelong journey and relentless quest to make horses’ lives healthier, happier and better through cutting-edge and ancient technologies, her boundless energy makes her always look for solutions. She lives with her husband Jack, four dogs, three cats and nine horses on their 48-acre farm, where Sue also operates the educational foundation she created 22 years ago, which explores the human potential through equines. She graduated from the University of Florida.
