Amina Bursese


Kim Bursese is a registered nurse and vetran whom retired from the United States Air Force after 31 years of service and 3 tours over seas. She retired with the rank of Lt. Colonel from SANGB. Kim's passion has always been helping people. Now that she is retired from the military Kim still works as a school nurse during the week and at the emergency room of a local St. Mary's hospital some weekends. Although helping and healing people are what Kim does best her true passion is horses. Kim has over 35 years of experience with horses and is also an experienced breeder of the coveted Spanish-Norman horse breed.

Amina Bursese, Kims daughter happens to share her mothers same passions. As one of the directors for FFAWN (Mary J. Blige's non-profit focusing on educational empowerment for women) and a business savy, horse enthusiast Amina has been trying to find an outlet to combine both her talents and passions. Knowing that her and her mother wanted to start an organization that involved horses and giving back Amina started to do her research. She became a member of the NARHA (North American Riding for the Handicapped Association) and found the answer when she read about "Horses For Heroes".

The concept of combining Kim and Amina's knowledge of horses, Kim's medical and military background and the opportunity to work with vetrans; a group of people that hold a very personal and special place in their hearts, they decided what it was they needed to do, Start a "Horses For Heroes" Riding Center at their home in Broadalbin, NY. Amina and Kim have begun the certification process to become EEA trainers.
