Cristal, our Office Manager, is attending school to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician and hopes to utilize her experience at ADC in achieving that goal. Always an avid animal lover, she studied zoology before working in the infant section of a local zoo. She studied Rufus Naped Tamarins for two years while living in Panama with her husband, a soldier. For more than 30 years Cristal has worked with numerous horse breeds but especially enjoys Miniature Horses. She currently owns five that she hopes to show in breed registry shows. She has been competing in Miniature Horse shows since 1988 and has spoken on the topic many times. She is also a carded judge for the World Class Miniature Horse Registry and helps new owners by leading training seminars and one-on-one training sessions.
Cristal, her husband, and two children are originally from NY but have moved around the country during his military career. In addition to her horses – Danny, Brittany, Sneakers, Sarge, and Goldie – she shares her home with her dogs, Ella and Chewy.
