Get to know Stephie Baker
Welcome to my website, I’m Stephie Baker! I’m so glad you found me! I have made it my special mission to help you achieve your dreams. Can I ask…is that to learn how to barrel race, have success with your first horse, learn more about feeding your horse, or to gain confidence? I’m here for all of it and I’ll be your number one cheerleader… and coach of course! No goal is too big!
My background covers a bit of ground, so let’s get into it! I have a degree in psychology, but I no longer practice. I also am certified in Equine Craniosacral Therapy, Holistic Equine Nutrition, Equine Kinesiology Taping, Animal Communication, Holistic Equine Nutrition, Human Sports Nutrition, and soon Personal Training, Strength Training, and Holistic Nutrition. Aside from education, I have also trained many horses, but especially OTTBs. I mean I have three myself!
I have barrel raced since I was about 8 years old and have ridden since I was 4 years old. I rode hunt seat in college. I also traveled the country barrel racing in my earlier years, and then later began helping other equestrians with their horse issues (behavioral, nutrition, etc.). I also owned a boarding facility, which was a lot of fun and hope to do so in the future!
Will I go back to rodeo? Absolutely! My horses just are not ready yet. I take the slow approach when teaching. On that note, I do liberty work just for fun! It’s a perfect way to develop a solid connection with your horse. You should try it!
Where am I located? I’m originally from New York State, but I have traveled and lived in many other states. I am currently about to move back to Phoenix, Arizona. However, do not let that discourage you if you do not live close to me, because I offer virtual lessons!
I hope it was fun getting to know a little bit about me!
Let’s talk soon!
