Beth H. Tolentino Region 3 Spotlight June 2024

Beth H. Tolentino

When did you start riding horses? 

I was horse crazy since I can remember, but never had a horse of my own. My grade school friend Amy let me ride bareback double (me in back) with her. Other friends with horses were kind to share with me as much as possible. When I turned 50, I decided it was time to finally buy my very own horse. So now, I am living my 8-year-old self’s dream! 

How did you get interested in Working Equitation? 

Shana Drake is a college sorority sister of mine. We were chatting at a reunion a couple of years ago and she shared about Working Equitation. 

Tell us about your favorite horse(s). 

Ginger, the chestnut mare (!) my grade school friend Amy had. Ginger was so patient with us little girls, riding up and down the big hill in Amy’s yard over and over. I don’t remember any bad behavior from her, and she taught me how to stay on with just my legs and core balance and no mane to hold onto. Mateus is my favorite now, of course! 

Please tell us something about your life away from horses (family, home or professional life). 

I am a physician assistant who has worked ER and urgent care. My husband of 37 years (Elias) and I live in the beautiful Flint Hills. We have three adult children.
