Alison’s love of horses began with her first pony ride at age three. She began taking riding lessons when she was seven, eventually competing in hunter/jumper horse shows. She began volunteering at MTR in 2010 and recently became a member of the barn staff. She still volunteers at MTR every week, and enjoys interacting with both the horses and the people.

Erin Teigen

Instructor, Equine Specialist and Caretaker

Erin was raised in Virginia, where she began riding at four-years-old and competed in hunter-jumper shows. As a young 4-Her, she first experienced the holistic power of therapeutic riding as a volunteer horse leader and sidewalker. After graduating from the College of William and Mary, Erin moved to Maryland and began volunteering and serving as a Special Olympics coach at LeCheval Stable in Howard County. Continuing to share her passion for therapeutic riding, Erin is excited to work with the fantastic MTR program as a PATH Intl. Instructor and Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning.
