A Seattle transplant, Belinda Jensen will tell you she grew up on the back of a horse! Belinda’s best friend growing up was her trusty horse, Choctaw, and they would venture through the hills of Orange County, California for hours. With the duties and obligations of “real life” she fell away from the horse world while pursuing her education and career. In 2009, Belinda realized she needed horses back in her life and found a small horse rescue called Cowgirl Spirit, where she eagerly volunteered to fill the void. She quickly rose to the ranks of Vice President for Cowgirl Spirit. Not long after, she fell in love with a rescue horse there and adopted him in 2010. The rescue organization retired in 2017 and Belinda will always be grateful for the time she served there, and the wonderful horses she was able to help. Belinda is excited for the opportunity to serve on the Board for SAFE and continue her passion for helping horses in need. 

Belinda lives in Carnation with her fiancée, Tom, as well as her horse Casanova, and two rescue dogs Cheyenne and Kai. In her spare time, she can be found at the barn with Casanova – her home away from home!
