Nancy King, MS, OTL
In 2001, Nancy earned her Master's Degree in Occupational Therapy. As a life-long horse lover, she founded A Horse Connection in the Hudson Valley region of New York State. Her vision was and always has been to combine her passion for horses and her passion for helping people. Her aim is to make the world a little better by helping one person at a time, with the help of horses.
Since moving to the Triangle region of North Carolina (with her herd), she is bringing her wealth of knowledge and expertise in this field to the Five County Area. She is ready and eager to introduce you and your loved ones to A Horse Connection Programs.
Her work has been featured in two award winning documentary films: "A Horse Connection" and "Riding Tall".
Nancy is a licensed OT in the state of NC, is certified by the American Hippotherapy Association.
For almost 20 years, Nancy has had the great fortune to have the help of many volunteers, too many to name, who have helped to support the mission of A Horse Connection. They have worked tirelessly to groom, lead, sidewalk, gather equipment, meet and greet clients and families, help implement therapy sessions, and plan and help with many events. This work quite simply could not be done without them.
Hal, Double Dip, Martha, Captain Morgan, Penny, Annie, Pony Boy, Scarloey, Root Beer Float, Russell, Punky, Rosita, Mo, Harry, Kate are just some of the stars and heart of A Horse Connection. Some are still with us, and some are sadly gone, but did not leave us without having provided love, patience, and joy to so many. We are forever grateful to them.
