PATH Certified Riding Instructor, Volunteer Coordinator
After college, Karrin continued working with horses while competing in show jumping. However, it was not until 2014 that she began her journey at Hunkapi, initially serving as a highly-valued volunteer. After a year of volunteering, Karrin knew she needed to follow her heart and join Hunkapi’s team. Today, Karrin serves as Hunkapi’s barn manager, volunteer coordinator, and PATH certified therapeutic riding instructor. Karrin’s greatest passions are horses and children, and the opportunity for her to work with both, together, is a childhood dream. She loves sharing the therapeutic power of horses with others.
Karrin is a graduate of the Barrett Honors college at ASU, where she studied anthropology, psychology and philosophy. Karrin is a huge proponent of life-long learning, and her greatest joy in working at Hunkapi is the opportunity to continue to grow and learn, while sharing her knowledge with students as they work to achieve a higher level of riding combined with a higher sense of mindfulness. When not riding or teaching, Karrin cherishes time spent with her two children. She enjoys painting, gardening and decorating, but also eagerly anticipates the moment when the next therapeutic riding lesson begins!
