Lydia was employed with Blue Bridle on a part time basis and later returned to work full time as a licensed equine insurance agent. She has extensive office administration experience along with an Associates Degree in Business Administration. Lydia has always had a love for horses and raising her two daughters solidified this passion. She encouraged them to get involved with horseback riding which quickly became their hobby. This led to her volunteer activity at an equine therapeutic riding facility where she was able to work with horses, riders and family. She also helped with fund raisers to improve the quality of this non-profit organization.
