Tessa Tapscott, Student (UCSB)
Pet: Horse
I have always felt a strong connection to animals, being around them enriches my life and I would like my presence to enrich their's as well, which is why I was inspired to pursue interspecies collaboration. I have had pet the majority of my life of many varieties, from cats and dogs to rabbits and horses. The relationship that has developed between my horse and myself is particularly inspiring and has certainly changed my life for the better. I have worked in various animals related fields: assistant trainer at a dressage barn, dog walker/sitter, and I currently work at a dog daycare and boarding facility. I look forward to seeing how humans and animals can collaborate in a variety a ways.
