Always willing to pitch in when help is needed, David has been around Forward Stride since its inception. He was first introduced to the program when his sisters would come to riding lessons with Kris on weekends. Not long after that he found himself helping with odd jobs around the property, cleaning water troughs and fixing fences.

He was hired on in 2014 and has been a horse handler and helping hand since then. Presently, he is the only male member of staff. This doesn’t bother him. His three favorite things are archery, working with animals, and traveling and experiencing the outdoors.
