Loretta has been around horses all of her life. She grew up living near a groom for the Budweiser Clydesdales, hence her love for the large breeds. Loretta took lessons at tyical lesson barns. As a child her family was not in a position that would allow her to own or lease a horse. She was also an avid figure skater, which is a great addition to a conditioning program for any equestrian.

Loretta earned her 1st Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. Another sport she highly recommends because of the compatability with horseback riding.
