My name is Bridgette Turchetto and I am the owner of LameAway Oregon. I wanted to take a minute and introduce myself and tell you a little about who I am and where I came from. I was born and raised on the southern Oregon coast. Growing up, I was fortunate enough to learn from some amazing 4H and FFA leaders who encouraged and helped shape me into the person I am today.
After graduating college in 2007 with a Bachelors in Business, I married my husband in the fall of 2008. We are blessed to live along the beautiful North Umpqua river just outside Roseburg Oregon and are parents to some pretty special fur babies, one being my 25-year-old mare who has been with me since she was 3 months old. Along with her, we have two fair weather wanna be barn cats (meaning they live the good life inside) and a 12-year-old AQHA mare whom I barrel race and attempt to sort cows with (she hasn’t quite embraced her cow side yet).
Growing up I always knew I wanted to be involved in horses somehow. I found that perfect opportunity in equine massage and started my own business, Equine Sports Therapy LLC. Always on the lookout for products that could benefit my clients, a close friend introduced me to LameAway. After trying it on my horse and myself, I knew that this was a product more people needed to know about and started LameAway Oregon.
It’s funny how the world works. In college people would ask what I was going to do? My reply, “I want to work for a company in the horse industry.” I was open to what that might be. Being able to work with a company like LameAway has been a dream opportunity. Not only do they stand behind the products they produce but they support their distributors in every way possible.
Running both companies keeps me busy! I love my clients and their equine athletes. I am truly blessed to live the life I live, work for the people I work for and have the critters I have.
