Marcia Trujillo - Treasurer
Marcia's love of horses came from her dad, Calvin Davis. She and her brothers enjoyed trips with their father out in the back country throughout Oregon and Idaho.
One of her favorite trips with her dad, was to the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Area with all of her family. This horse camping adventure included her husband Gary, two daughters and extended family.
Something that Marcia appreciates about the Stock Horse Pleasure class is the use of a horse to get from one place to the next. This was something instilled in her from Calvin.
When Marcia had her first lesson, Calvin asked what she learned and she explained that she had worked on her stop. He laughed and said, "Thats a good idea".
Marcia's profession throughout life was as a school teacher and her passion for riding and learning has continued on with her horse Little Bit.
