How much of your day/week is related to horses?
ALL day EVERY day is dedicated to horses in my business. Besides the 72 standardbred rescues my family has saved, I am in constant contact with clients and potential clients all day and through the wee hours of the night because my business is international!!
What is it exactly that you do?
My company is Equine Altitude International – we build, fabricate and ship horse stables world wide that are simulated in high altitude for better health and performance. We treat horses like modern day Olympians and bring the MOUNTAIN to them!
In this field of work, is it possible to be a full time professional and earning a liveable income?
Yes! I am fully devoted to my company and have been making a very nice income as Altitude Simulation has become popularized as a legal healthy option to horses lung health, bleeding and performance. Depending on the size of the project we can make a generous profit. We try to get the applications out there without chunking on too much profit in order for clients to see how awesome the technology is… And with this they always come back for more!!
Favourite horse memory?
My favorite horse memory was when Shamus Award – a maiden – won the 3 million dollar Cox Plate after receiving his altitude stall off the ship in Australia just 5 weeks prior. The altitude helped his lungs and his low blood count and he went wire to wire creating history as the first maiden to ever win this most prestigious thoroughbred race in the world!
My future goals at this present moment are to introduce our technology to the Middle East and Hong Kong and travel abroad watching more clients’ horses excel in far far away places!
Best thing about your sport/profession?
The best part of my profession is that I become an integral tool and part of some incredible racehorses training regimens. I am always in the center of the action and I get to see horses being treated like modern day Olympians with the best of care! It also enables me to save more racehorses and fund retirements for these majestic beautiful animals.
