I can't say when my love for Horses began.  It seems to have a birth given passion.

My grandfather was a racehorse trainer and my uncle a jockey. I grew up with ottb

long before it was fashionable.  I have been fortunate to experience horses in many

breeds and disciplines.  My current passion is Endurance riding.  My husband and I

own Cork N Mane.  We own 11 horses and offer training and riding lessons.  I 

believe in the horse and the positive impacts they make in our lives.

Committee: Events and Education

I am a lifelong equestrian and have owned and shown several different breeds of horses. I currently train and exhibit Miniature Horses, mostly in driving classes. My love of horses and people led me to become a PATH International certified riding instructor for Milestones Therapeutic Equestrian Center.

I have been a member of the Northern Kentucky Horse Network since the first public meeting because I love to learn about all things equine. I currently sit on the Events/Education Committee, the Horse Show Committee and the Membership Committee. Hope to see you at our next educational event.

I have had horses for 30 years, but have loved them as long as I can remember.  I appreciate all types of horse breeds and sports.  I have primarily owned, showed, trail ridden, and loved Tennessee Walking horses.  However, I took a detour into English Pleasure/Costume with a Half-Arabian, am currently pursuing a Thoroughbred breeding endeavor, and ride on the Collage gaited drill team.

I love to trail ride. My favorite place to trail ride is Hocking Hills State Park.  My horse is named Sam.  We are a Level 1 cowboy mounted shooting team.  We have also been learning about carriage driving.  Where do I get my horse savvy from?  I have been a part of the Parelli natural horsemanship program for nine years.

Donnie has lived in Alexandria, Kentucky, his entire life, and currently lives just a quaerer-mile from where he grew up on Persimmon Grove. He stays busy with his family’s concrete business. He has been married to his wife Dawn for 18 years, with whom they have three daughters and five grandchildren. Growing up on a farm, he was always around horses and ponies. While his interest was not focused solely on horses, once he grew up and was out of the house, it certainly helped him when he first met Dawn. He soon learned she loved horses. Their first date was taking the family horses on a trail ride, and then as the saying goes, “the rest was history!” Donnie’s quarter horse, Champ, and Dawn’s Kentucky Mountain horse, Peaches, are a special part of their family now. Shortly after he and Dawn married, he tapped into a special talent – carving with a chainsaw. This gift likely came from his carpenter father, and it is a skill that has grown over the years. You can find him at the Festival at the Lake in August, or the Wool Festival in Pendleton County in October, just to name a couple of events where he sells his artworks. He also carves ornaments that his grandchildren enjoy each Christmas. Donnie has been a member since the Northern Kentucky Horse Network formed in 2007. In fact, he helped cut the trails through A. J. Jolly Park in 2009 and has volunteered to be part of the work party each year, helping form and clear trails. So, if you are riding through A. J. Jolly Park and see a cactus carved from a cedar tree – you will know Donnie Orth was there!

I bought my first horse in 1975 and met my wife (who had horses) in 1977.  In 1989, I began working with 4-H and joined the 4-H Council, later holding offices of President and Vice President.  This led to the start of the Young Guns 4-H Drill Team in 1999.  My wife is the 4-H Leader and Coach.  I served on the Boone County Fair Board for two years.  I love to drive and ride my Tennessee Walker horse.  I enjoy camping with my horse, Jethro.  My entire family loves and rides horses including my six grandchildren.
