Meet our team...

We are blessed to have very talented and committed team members at Bethany's Gait, particularly because most volunteer their time (including those in leadership roles).  Get to know a few of them below.
Cristi Silverberg-Rose, APR, ECP-B, EAGALA Certified

Founder/Executive Director


Cristi learned that a horse has more to offer than just a strong back to ride when she was a small child. She spent many summers under the watchful eye of her Uncle Sam who was a rodeo cowboy. She has owned horses her entire life and knows the true gift they have to offer humans.


While volunteering at a youth ranch in the early 90's Cristi met Bethany and discovered the healing power that lies within horses. In 2006 the ranch was born. Today she has led Bethany’s Gait beyond foster children to serve active duty, reserve and veteran military and their families. 

Cristi understands all too well the challenges of military life. Her husband is a retired Marine Corps Lt. Col, her oldest son is a Captain in the Marine Corps and her youngest son is working towards becoming a Navy Seal.


Cristi is certified in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Co-Facilitated Partnership Rituals-Basic (ECP-B).  She holds a BA in Communications/Advertising and an Accreditation in Public Relations (APR). She is a member of the North American Horsemen's Association (NAHA), the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH Intl.), Back Country Horsemen of Northern Arizona (BCHNAZ), and the Granite Mountain Riders (GMR).
