​Ever since she first sat on a horse, Marley Powden was hooked! Throughout her 18+ years as a rider and horse owner, she has had the opportunity to participate in Pony Club, 4H, showing, training and teaching.

Since joining Heart & Heritage Stables, Marley has had the opportunity to share her love of horses and knowledge with many students. Marley has found that with a safe and encouraging environment, people can blossom into terrific riders. She encourages students to excel in all aspects of horsemanship from horse care to riding techniques. She enjoys being able to work with students of all ages and abilities.

Marley splits her time between being a riding instructor and working as a Pediatric Medical Social Worker. She hopes to eventually combine her two loves, helping people and horses.
