Tom Thorpe is in his senior year at Delaware Valley University. Upon graduation, he will have a Bachelor’s Degree in Equine Business Management. He also is certified in Equine Massage Therapy and Equine Kinesiology Taping. Prior to school, Tom was in the Marine Corps for over eight years, attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant. During this time, he deployed to Iraq three times. Upon getting out, he was afforded the opportunity to take part in a therapeutic riding program. From that moment, horses have been an important part of his life. He received his Associate’s Degree in Emergency Management and Planning and held a year long internship with a county agency. He realized that the office life was not for him and being outside, working with horses was where he was meant to be.
