Helen Dionne is an experienced professional horse trainer and riding instructor who works everyday with horses. She got her first horse when she was 33, in 1968, and began barrel racing and endurance riding. A member of the West Virginia Arabian Horse Association for the past 19 years, she has had champions in all divisions. 

Helen loves all horse breeds, but feels closest to Arabians, and states ďArabian horses are misunderstood and get a bad rapĒ. She encourages those interested in horses to come see for themselves how wonderful Arabians truly are.
