Nichole grew up riding horses in the mountains of Northern Idaho. Her love for horses came early and naturally for her. Nichole first worked in the veterinary field at a mixed animal practice for 3 years, until she had her son. Riding bikes and horses with her son Mussy are some of her favorite activities. Though all horses are special for her, she has a passion for the pure Spanish horse (Andalusian), and has been a breeder for 17 years. Nichole joined McKinlay & Peters in March of 2008 and enjoys her work deeply as a continued source of connection with the equestrian lifestyle.
