Meet Justine

On September 25, 2015 Justine's beloved mother, Sandra Cartwright, passed away tragically and suddenly from a brain aneurism. Justine and her mother were extremely close, despite the distance between England and Colorado. One of Sandra's greatest wishes was for Justine to have a covered arena for her classes. Please consider donating to a memorial fund set up in her honor to raise money to cover the arena. When complete, it will be dedicated in her memory: Nannie's Arena.

Combining Justine's childhood love of horses with her training and passion for therapy is the perfect fit! In 1994 Justine graduated from the Peto Institute in Budapest, Hungary and Keele University, England with a degree in Conductive Education, a multidisciplinary approach to working with individuals with neuromotor disorders. She then began working at a residential school for children with profound physical disabilities in Nottingham, England and later managed a Conductive Education preschool in Leicester, England.

Justine moved to Colorado in 2001 and soon began building a new Conductive Education program in Loveland, CO. She completed the Sensory Integration Certification Program sponsored by USC/WPS a post-graduate pathway to advanced competency in sensory integration theory and intervention, becoming a certified Sensory Integration Therapist. She began volunteering at a local Therapeutic Riding Center in 2001 and later became a PATH Intl Therapeutic Riding Instructor and AHA Registered Therapist in Hippotherapy in 2003 and has practiced hippotherapy ever since.

She lives on the property with her husband and two wonderful children. She loves living in such a beautiful place and having the opportunity to raise her family in the country lifestyle.
