Rebekah Sheridan, Rehab Technician (FSC)
Rebekah started riding horses when she was 8 years old at a YMCA summer camp. She got her first horse, a chestnut OTTB gelding when she was 12 years old. Rebekah graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and a minor in Equine Science. She has worked in the equine industry for over 10 years including boarding barns, training barns, thoroughbred racing/breeding barns, rehabilitation therapy, and other large animal veterinary practices, like New Bolton Center. She has ridden in western pleasure, hunters, hunt seat equitation, and dressage. She has a special interest in equine rehabilitation therapy thanks to her horse who had surgery twice and came back healing strong, still capable of doing everything he was before. Rebekah learned a valuable life lesson that patience, diligence, repetition, and a lot of TLC can work miracles on healing horses. While at PSU, she rode for the IHSA team competing in open flat and intermediate fences, going to regionals with the team, completed an equine training class where she helped train, ride, and sell the foals, yearlings, and 2 year old Quarter horses bred at PSU, and she participated in Little International, showing a 2 year old Quarter horse. In her spare time aside from horses, Rebekah enjoys anything to do with the outdoors including: photography, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, swimming, running, fishing, and snowboarding.
