Guest Speaker Kateri Cowley - How Horses Teach Us to Become Good Leaders
Kateri Cowley grew up at world famous Ranch –
Rafter Six Ranch where riding everyday was not just a passion, it was a
part of life. She developed many “tactical skills” being outside the arena
and knowing how to teach a horse to trust her through challenging
mountainous terrain. It was from here that she got discovered for the big
screen, start-ing stunt riding at the young age of 7 for the Olson Twins.
She wrangled for many international movies and with actors such as Brad
Pitt, Charlie Boorman, Mark Wright, and many more!
