CARINA
I’m a 3rd generation horsewoman who started working in barns at age 11 for $2.50/hour and ring time. Fast forward a decade or two and I brought two horses to college in 2001, another to flight school in 2006, leased horses around going to war in 2009, rescued my draft horse in 2016, and published the national equestrian magazine EQuine AMerica from 2018 to 2021
(now owned by StreamHorseTV).
Being an attorney who has worked in several barns; bought, sold, leased, and rescued horses; and created, developed, and sold an equestrian business, my personal and professional experiences make me particularly aware of the legal issues that amateur and professional horse owners—and equine businesses—face on a daily basis. In keeping with my lifelong passion, it seemed only natural to shift my focus to Equine Legal & Business Services.
