About Us

About us
Dr. Heike Jung, Founder of HorseWorldConnect


As a Veterinarian and Animal Chiropractor, Natural Horsemanship Instructor and Certified Professional Coach, Dr. Jung always looks “outside the box.”  


In her life journey, she’s met a lot of amazing people with great visions and love for horses. Besides horses, one of Heike's passions is connecting people and businesses who seem to be a great fit.


Creating an online community for supporting and connecting people who work with horses was a natural fit.  Dr. Jung continues to support the growth and evolution of HWC, even as she turns her focus to her practice and further learning.

Chelsea’s been riding horses since she was 3 years old. She participated in the 2011 Pony Finals with her pony, Callihan Rose, which was a dream come true. She competed on the collegiate circuit and was co-captain her senior year.


She is a graduate from West Virginia University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications Studies with a focus in Social Media.
