Looking back, Dr. Patricia Daly-Lipe attributes her success to her endless passion of the arts, love and thirst for life and to her husband. She is formerly a breeder and racer as well as a hunter/jumper show rider of thoroughbred horses. After moving to Virginia in 2004, she started rescuing thoroughbreds. Utilizing her writing talent, she wrote numerous articles in magazines and newspapers to give the animals a voice and to raise awareness of their plight.
