Joann McBride is the Barn Manager at GB’s. Her duties include serving as the caretaker, trainer, as well as riding instructor. Joann has a vast amount of experience and certification working with horses on both the Western and English front, including a wide array of knowledge in natural horsemanship (having recently obtained her level 3 Parelli). Of equal importance she has a passion for the horses and for communicating with the people. Joann says this has been a lifelong dream, and we are pleased that she will be fulfilling that dream here at GB’s.
With Joann we all know that our horse(s) and family here are cared for and respected. She is always accessible to answer questions and ensure your needs are met and flexibility is of the utmost importance to her. Joann helps foster a sense of community and expand our knowledge in the Equestrian world. Her desire to incorporate clinics, obstacle challenges, and even an Equestrian soccer team into her program is very exciting.
Joann's top priorities as caretaker are “the health and welfare of the horses in my care, and communication with boarders and staff".
Having her live right across the street from the barn is an added bonus.
