Cheryl Brown

TRRFCC Horsemanship Facilitator

Cheryl Brown is a life-long animal lover. As a child, she found that her animal friends were always good listeners when she needed to talk about life’s problems. She had friends who owned horses while growing up and always enjoyed being around them. Moving into adulthood she earned a Masters in Special Education and taught in the public school system. She spent her career working with and advocating for students as they found their strengths and their voices. A friendship with a fellow educator reawakened her love of being around horses. Wanting to learn more, she found Jodi Scott’s School of Horsemanship through a brochure that advertised lessons for people from 5 to 50+. Since she was in the 50+ age group she knew she’d found the right place to learn and reconnect with horses. As a result of Jodi’s patience and knowledge, she has gained horsemanship skills and become a horse owner. Being a part of the TRRFCC Horsemanship program allows Cheryl to continue her love of working with children, helping them develop confidence as they learn to interact with and develop relationships with horses…and to learn that horses are good listeners.
