SALLY MANSHARDT - CHAIR
My name is Sally Manshardt and it is a great pleasure to serve as a board member on The Friends of The Madison Mounted Patrol. It is also an honor to support this dedicated and caring Unit!

LISA HIEBING - TREASURER
Lisa Hiebing works at Hiebing's Refrigeration, Inc., and handles the administrative and bookkeeping duties. Lisa and her family have lived in De Forest for almost 20 years. Lisa's family adopted a burro and a mustang from the Bureau of Land Management and found Natural Horsemanship as a valued method of training. Lisa is committed to helping Madison Mounted because she understands the value and unique abilities that police horses are able to provide!
NATASHA HIEBING - SECRETARY
Natasha is currently a student planning to go to college to major in business, and she is also the intern with the Madison Mounted Patrol Unit. Since a very young age, Natasha always wanted to be around horses, and always admired the idea of becoming a mounted police officer, hence her joining the board to support the unit. She (her family) has two horses, a rescue named “Blue Ghost” and a BLM mustang, “Sassy”.
Coco moved to Madison in 1994 and immediately fell in love with the city. She eventually moved out of the city where she can have her 4 horses with her. She enjoys trail riding and working cows. She stumbled upon Natural Horsemanship in 2008 while being treated at the ER by a doctor who told her all about it. Looking for a local trainer, she came to The Horse First Farm in Brooklyn and discovered that it was the resort of the Madison mounted horses. Witnessing the officers' dedication to their partners, she wanted to be part of it and help this great organization to keep the patrol going and bring the community together.
