BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Elizabeth Shatner

store/uploads/Liz and Glory Closeup500px.jpgElizabeth Shatner - Born with a love of horses, Elizabeth began riding at the age of five. At the tender age of eight, she got her first horse, a Galiceno pony. By 14, she was teaching horseback riding and participating in young judging competitions with the Indiana Arabian Club, winning several national honors and a scholarship. As a part of the scholarship, she was able to attend a USEF judging clinic. It was during her time as a youth judge that she began to appreciate the power of the horse and its role in both society and nature. She attended Purdue University studying equine and animal science and Butler University in Telecommunications. Elizabeth went on to dedicate her life to the Horse, eventually holding nine judging cards, being a professional light breed trainer for 25 years, and a Saddleseat instructor for 30.
 
In 2000, Elizabeth became non-pro, and her version of “retirement” has been to go on to win multiple World Championship titles with the likes of All Glory, The Full Monty, Boston Legal, and So Photogenic – both under saddle and to bike. Simultaneously, she has developed a name for herself in the art world, combining high-end photography and digital painting with her own art company, “Elizabeth Shatner’s Art by Nature”.  Her pieces focus on the healing power of nature’s forms, and the spirit of the Horse and those who love it. 
 
Elizabeth’s latest endeavor, however, is closest to her heart – for it combines her love of animals, and her desire to bring healing to others, with one of the greatest causes an American can support. In 2010, she founded The All Glory Project  - a non-profit to promote, foster and support programs that utilize animal-assisted therapies in aiding Military Veterans and their families.  The Project also recognizes our four-legged friends that have served humankind so bravely over the centuries, "We are a non-profit campaign of consciousness to thank our wounded heroes, human and animal alike,” says Mrs. Shatner. Equine- and canine-assisted therapy is among the most powerful and enduring methods of healing what ails us, and Elizabeth hopes you’ll help her make it more available to those who have sacrificed.
