Elaine Nash grew up on a ranch in New Mexico, with horses as best friends in an otherwise isolated world. By age 12 she was training horses for neighboring ranchers, and after high school she operated her own training facility while in college. After graduating from college with a degree in Education and Communications, she moved to Nashville, TN, where she built an award-winning business in celebrity promotion, image development, and career management for entertainers, and she was a feature columnist for a leading Nashville entertainment industry magazine. She created 'Go West', the first art gallery in the south to feature western and southwestern art, and was frequently featured on Nashville'stelevision programs as an interior design advisor in all things 'western'. Elaine is a published author of many interviews, articles, stories, and jokes. Throughout her life, she has owned and had a passion for horses. After leaving Nashville to raise her family in the west, she opened a spacious equestrian facility in Colorado where she, trained- using natural horsemanship skills, showed, and cared for many horses including her own two national champion Andalusians, several rescued horses, and numerous family show horses and trail riding horses. She also became a certified equine appraiser and served as an expert witness in equine-related court cases. Now a dedicated advocate for at-risk equines, she devotes her time and resources to directing Fleet of Angels, as well as working to develop other needed systems and processes to help save and protect at-risk equines. “I’m just doing for them now, what horses have always done for me. Having horses saved my life.” says Nash.
About Fleet of Angels
Fleet of Angels was founded in 2012 with the launch a web site with a small data base of horse trailer owners who want to help get at-risk equines transported from danger to safety for the least amount possible. A Facebook page was soon added to help equine rescuers network with trailer owners. Tax-exempt, nonprofit status was offiicially granted in January of 2015. Since our launch, Fleet of Angels has grown to become a network of thousands of trailer owners, lay-over facilities, quarantine facilities, and pther service providers. Our members have assisted with providing free or low cost transportation for several thousand at-risk equines- - and we're just getting started!
