Marsha George, EFAI, CEMTS

    I began my life with horses in the 3rd grade.  Participated in 4-H as a child, then helped with my childrens 4-H groups as an adult.  I organized and ran a Volunteer Mounted Search & Rescue Team for 20 years.  We assisted local police agencies in searching for those lost or overdue when hunting, hiking, etc.  Im involved with 3 different county Humane Societies, and assist with rescue and rehab of abused and neglected horses.  I am currently completing certification to become and equine merit badge counselor for both the Boys Scouts of America and the Girls Scouts of the USA.  I have been a certified Equine First Aid Instructor for over 4 years.

     My parents said I was born with horses on the brain and my love for them is a passion to this day.  I started riding at the age of 5 being lucky to experience many different disciplines.  I met Brenda 15 years ago when  I became a member of the Mounted Search & Rescue Team.   10 years ago I became and Equine Massage Therapist and certified in Myofascial Release.  Im active with local counties in the rescue and rehab of abused and neglected horses.  Ive adopted several of them myself.     I have been an Equine First Aid Instructor for over 4 years.
