Liz Douglas  (liz@mend.horse)  (KY, PA, FL)                 

I started as a child apprentice under Virginia Orr, a TB exercise rider and show jumper from South Africa.  Ginny taught me everything from the ground up at a small farm in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania.  I showed a bit (h/j) but preferred hacking about the countryside on my Chestnut TB, Roger.  

I began practicing bodywork techniques as the Equine Care Specialist for a nonprofit in New York.  After witnessing the profound effects of therapy on horses in transition I acquired extensive education, certifications, and a formal degree in Equine Rehabilitation. 

I have since worked with teams in Florida, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania, including: FEI; USDF; USHJA; Graded Stakes; Breeders Cup;  Derby/Oaks runners; USDF National Champions; & USEF Pony Final Champions.

I am currently rehabbing my own OTTB who came to me with a condylar fracture.  She is teaching me even more than I care to learn ;)  That's her, in the picture above.
