Lisa Munro, 25. (Boulder, CO) Rider, Small Business Owner Lisa Munro is a lifelong equestrian with a love of horses, education, and business. She competes in the Adult Jumper division on her beloved OTTB and participates in entertaining educational horsemanship sessions with kids at her local barn. Most recently, Lisa has helped her young barn mates study for the 2017 Horsemanship Quiz Challenge sponsored by The Plaid Horse. Lisa Munro began a small business called Horse D’oeuvres, a delightfully tongue in cheek name for her homemade horse treats. As a child, Lisa would feed her horse cookies home baked by her mother. Sighting a market for the tasty treats, she perfected the recipe and launched Horse D’oeuvres in 2016. Delicious, easy to stuff in your pockets, and readily ordered online, the treats are a favorite of horses and humans. The motto of Horse D’oeuvres is “Treat your horse with love,” a tenet that Lisa lives by. Equestrian, horsemanship proponent, small business owner, Lisa Munro is an asset to the horse industry.
