After growing up in a small town in upstate New York that had more horses and cows than people, Matt first started working with horses shortly after high school and loved it. He went on to manage a hunter/jumper and rehab barn for a couple years. He took a job in a different field afterwards, but always kept a foot in the door with the horse industry, whether it be grooming for horse shows up and down the east coast or working at private farms. Eventually Matt decided he wanted to get back into working with horses full time and started as a rehab technician with Furlong’s Soundness Center. In his free time, Matt enjoys spending time with friends and being out in the woods.
