ARIELLE FUNK
Hello, I'm Arielle Fulk, a dedicated professional with over 10 years of experience working with equine. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in animal science, specializing in horses, which has provided me with a solid foundation in equine care and management.

My passion for horses led me to pursue a career as an equine vet technician, where I gained valuable experience in diagnosing and treating lameness and reproductive issues in horses. This hands-on experience has allowed me to develop a deep understanding of equine health and welfare, enabling me to provide the best possible care for these magnificent animals.

In addition to my vet tech experience, I also have a strong background in retraining horses for new careers. Whether it's helping a retired racehorse transition to a pleasure riding horse or preparing a young horse for a competitive career, I take pride in helping horses reach their full potential and thrive in their new roles.

I am dedicated to continuing my education and staying current on the latest advancements in equine care and training. My goal is to always provide the highest level of care and education to those I teach, being horses or their counter parts!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my work educating upcoming equestrians as young as Kindergarten to adults. I specialize in Middle and High School students and am happy to bring my teaching expertise to Outschool.
