Tribute to a Lifetime Horsewoman

JSinnerChuckie

Judy Sinner, a lifetime horsewoman, started with a pony at age 6 (named Spotty, of course!), graduated to Quarter Horses, drill team and barrel racing, then to Arabian show horses at age 16. She was named Canadian National Junior Exhibitor Champion at the Canadian Arabian National Show in 1965 and 1966 and showed her first Top Ten halter horse at age 17 in 1965.

She began training professionally by age 18, and her Vallicrest Farm has bred, raised and/or trained 2 National Champions, 2 Scottsdale Champions, several Legion of Merit Champions, many Regional, Pacific Slope and Class A winning horses.

Besides showing, she survived many impromptu bareback races thru the apple orchards and asparagus fields of the Yakima Valley with her posse of other horse-loving kids.   She also survived swimming horses in the irrigation canals, teaching them to pull bobsleds while harnessed in bitting rigs (you make do with what you have when you are a kid), standing 4 champion Arab stallions over the years, boarding, instructing, countless foaling seasons, starting young horses, and helping at the race track.

Judy began with Dynamite in 1982 as one of the original Distributors. She was asked to be Corporate Communications Director in 1986, and she served in that capacity for 17 years as the company took its place as a major force in the supplement industry.  Since 2003, she generated her own Synergy newsletter and training information for her downline Distributors and customers, was the primary contributor and Forum moderator for DynamiteOnline.com, a Distributor community and training website, and assisted as needed with the corporate newsletter and conferences.  She and her fellow Gold Executive Director, Dr. Regan Golob, have co-produced educational CD’s including Dynamite Products Review, Feeding Boo Boo’s for Horses and Feeding Boo Boo’s for Humans, and they also co-taught a seminar on equine kinesiology and reflex points plus energy balancing, Things Your Horse Would Love to Tell You, all over the US and into Canada.

When Judy was not “on the road” for Dynamite, she could be found in front of the computer screen, with the phone glued to her left ear, answering endless questions (mostly cheerfully) about Dynamite products and brainstorming with Distributors and customers about their challenges with animals and personal health.

For her, life was an endless epiphany, with new revelations coming daily, and she felt privileged and humbled to be able to share the information that assisted us all to wellness.
