Gayle Gordon is a life long equestrian who has bred, trained and competed with American Paint horses since the early 1980’s. She is a graduate of Colorado State University with a degree in Business and Animal Science, and enjoyed a long career in accounting and finance. Throughout her equestrian career she has taught horseback riding to adults and children, including those with special needs.
In 2017 Gayle began the process of forming the non-profit Tiny Spirits. Her desire was to bring the unique healing powers of horses to the Las Vegas community. Tiny Spirits’s mission is to ease human suffering through equine assisted activities. These activities utilize miniature horses that go inside facilities such as hospice and rehab centers. These visits can help individuals that are experiencing social and or physical isolation that can arise from illness, disability or traumatic events.
The Jameson Fellowship focuses on leadership and recognizes individuals – of diverse ages, races, backgrounds, sectors, and organizations - for their contributions to southern Nevada. The Fellowship is an investment in relationships and aims to build a solid and connected leadership base across the nonprofit sector.
