Analynn Patterson

Salinas Office Team

Analynn grew up riding the trails in the Santa Cruz Mountains above Corralitos. She was active in 4-H Horse Science and Horsemanship, and showing Western. The “Black Stallion” books she read inspired Analynn’s interest in drawing and painting. While earning her BFA, she painted watercolor scenes from horse racetracks. Her favorite horse breeds are Connemara, Andalusian, and Lipizzaner. When she moved to Monterey County in 1986, Analynn began riding English, and fell in love with a Connemara mare and Dressage. Her mare, Tre Awain Kathleen, has had two foals. One of Analynn’s favorite days at SPEC was “foal duty” with a newborn. Analynn is the proud mother of son Devon, a musician and Information Systems Manager.
