Shelly Pelet Galpin

Compelled by a life-long love of horses, and a desire to share the benefits of equestrian activities with people who may not typically have access, Shelly began Locust Lane Riding Center in 2005.
She is passionate about helping people become the best version of themselves and finds great joy in witnessing lives being transformed by the saving power of Jesus Christ. 
Shelly has been trained and certified through CHA, Centered Riding, PA Council on Therapeutic Horsemanship and EAGALA. She is currently a professional member of PATH International and is pursuing dual certification as NLC, P-ES, through Natural Lifemanship. She is a certified professional life coach through Life Breakthrough Academy.
