Patti Draude, Vice Chairman
Patti Draude and her husband Ted fell in love with Montana and built a house in Manhattan in 2010. They are Pennsylvania natives and still maintain a small house there to spend time with their family, which now includes the addition of a granddaughter and grandson in 2015 and 2016. Patti holds a master’s degree in elementary education and taught in Pennsylvania for 25 years before leaving to work in the therapeutic riding field. She has been a PATH International and Pennsylvania-certified instructor for the last 10 years. She worked at Greystone Manor Therapeutic Riding Center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, as an instructor, volunteer coordinator, and head instructor. She currently volunteers at Eagle Mount with the therapeutic riding program. Patti is excited to join Windhorse and share her experience in this special field of horses helping people achieve great things! Patti and her husband enjoy riding their horses Max and Dually as well as camping, skiing, hiking, fly fishing and enjoying the beauty of Montana.
