Tia has always loved horses. She met and fell in love with her first horse at the age of two. She had her first riding experience at the grand old age of 3, on a trail horse named Blue in Sun Valley, ID. Since then, Tia has always had horses in her life. Horses and Tia seem to understand one another. She trained in hunter/jumpers through high school, and then transitioned into eventing during college at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon.
Tia has always had a passion for helping animals of all sizes. After college she worked as a small animal veterinary assistant/technician. She soon realized her true passion was to help horses feel their best through alternative therapies. She stumbled upon equine massage when her own horse needed bodywork to recover from an injury. Tia strives to help every horse feel their very best and brings a quiet, calming energy to each session.
