Mustang Board of Directors
Shannon has loved horses all her life. She started riding at 10 years old. To get herself through her school years she begged friends to let her borrow their mounts. Shannon wears several hats & adds a variety of talents to this team. She has 17 yrs experience as PTA President, Secretary & Treasurer, has done medical transcribing, & is currently a Listing Manager for a large company, a photographer & works special events security. Shannon met Darice in 1991, quickly becoming best of friends. Always eager to improve her horsemanship skills & equine passion, Shannon used every opportunity to learn from Darice. She became the humble owner of her first horse in '94. As with most people, her passion has evolved & changed, particularly when she learned about the Carter Reservoir Mustangs. She is determined to raise awareness about our beautiful wild horses & in 2018 was blessed to give a stunning Carter Reservoir Mustang a forever permanent home.
Darice started riding at a very young age when her dad would throw her up in the saddle and say, "You get on 'um first." She's been training horses and mules ever since, working for Lifesaver's Wild Horse Rescue, Rock N Easy mule ranch, private clients and her own stock. Darice helped train 3 BLM mustangs that went to the 2002 Winter Olympics in SLC, Utah & was part of a Brumby Gentling Team that went to Australia to share how we gentle our mustangs here in the U.S. Her 1st Carters were early in 2004 & they quickly became her favorite wild horse herd. Becoming a teamster has been a highlight of her career and finding her soul mate with a mutual love of the Carter's and mules has been a dream come true.
