Emily Knickerbocker grew up in Washington DC. She just graduated from The University of Vermont studying Animal Science with a concentration in animal welfare and law.  As a lifelong Brown Ledger, the Brown Ledge barn has always been her home away from home. Emily began riding when she was seven, and continued to do so at camp. While at The University of Vermont, she worked as an ICU technician at the Vermont Large Animal Clinic (VLAC). She also worked as a therapeutic riding instructor which was one of the most rewarding
experiences of her life.
