Lauri Michael

Vice President

Growing up in Indiana, horses were Lauri’s first true love. She spent most of her time raising and showing them in 4-H and local shows. As an adult, she always tried to find ways to be around horses again even though it usually wasn’t easy or practical.

“Thanks to the ranch, I’ve been able to use my skills in marketing to benefit these deserving rescue animals,” says Lauri.  “I’m thrilled to be able to help generate more attention to this wonderful organization and the beautiful horses it serves.”

Lauri and her husband, Tony, devote a significant amount of time to the ranch.  They began volunteering in 2017 and Lauri joined the board in 2018. They adopted one horse in 2018 and are helping train many others.  As PR/Communication team leader, Lauri coordinates news segments, writes and designs promotional materials, manages the website, and more.
