Get To Know Katie

My passion for horses began at the age of 10, and like most young horse-crazy girls, my dream was to have my very own. I drafted a detailed business proposal for my parents on PowerPoint explaining my commitment to taking care of my own horse. My detailed outline and unwavering determination resulted in a dream come true - Gigi, a 13 year old thoroughbred mare. Even as a young rider, I understood the importance of taking the best possible care of Gigi and valued working hard to afford the care, lessons, and competitions on my own. The joy that Gigi brought to me as a young rider was truly a gift that I never wanted to take for granted. As Gigi grew older, so did my commitment to keeping her healthy and comfortable in her later years by utilizing equine massage and chiropractic services. When it came time for Gigi to retire, I was fortunate to continue to care for her until she passed away at the age of 28.

I attended the University of Illinois where I studied Animal Science and rode all four years on their equestrian team. During my time at U of I and following graduation, I worked for the Brookfield Zoo working primarily with African mammals and reptiles. It was there that I learned intimately about animal husbandry, positive reinforcement training, and public education about conservation. Fueled by a passion for education and animals, I went back to school at Dominican University to receive my Master’s of Education. I then worked at the Lincoln Park Zoo in their education department where I ran the summer Conservation Camp and developed programs to help teachers and students utilize the zoo environment for informal learning.

During this time, I met and married my husband Greg. Prior to the birth of our two daughters, Quinn and Baylor, we purchased Oscar a Westphalian gelding. Together, Oscar and I competed on the Hunter Jumper circuit for 8 years. My dedication to keep him in peak condition as well as working through my own personal health setbacks with a herniated disk led me to explore the use of chiropractic, naprapathy, and massage as holistic healing modalities for both horse and human health.

This led to the formation of Unbridled Equine, a business focused on the use of integrative modalities to heal horses both physically and emotionally through proven, research based solutions. Today, Oscar is happily retired and loved by our entire family. I am continuing to enjoy the healing power of integrative medicine as an amateur rider competing in the jumper divisions and working with horses and riders nationwide take their performance to the next level.
