Marianne has been an animal lover since she was a small child. Her parents used to call her the guinea pig tamer. She grew up with fish, guinea pigs, rabbits and rats. She has been riding horses for over twenty years and has owned her own horse since 2003. Horses have always played a huge role in her life; she even studied Equine Science at Colorado State University. Over the years she has volunteered with many rescue groups and participated in lots of fund raisers for DDFL, Rocky Mountain Lab Rescue and The Colorado House Rabbit Society just to name a few. Now she is a proud owner of, not only her horse, but two cats and a Lab.
