For almost 4 decades Richard Winters has been pursuing and perfecting the art of horsemanship.

In the summer of 2017 Richard and Cheryl's journey took an unexpected yet exciting new turn. Richard accepted the invitation to be "Director of the Horse Program" at the historic and prestigious Thacher School in Ojai, California. This college preparatory boarding school has a 125-year history of academic excellence and strong horsemanship. Thacher has always believed that the challenges and responsibilities of horse care and horsemanship have the ability to teach life lessons that reach to the classroom, relationships, careers and beyond. After serving as Thacher's Horse Program Director for two years the Winters are embarking on a new yet very familiar adventure.
