Hi everyone, my name is Brittney Bertel!
I am the owner and founder of Prancing Princess Pony and I have been open and teaching now for 11 years! I currently own three horses named Amira, Bullseye and Chief. I have been riding horses for the last 18 years. I have 4 years experience working at the Oakley Union Elementary School District working as a substitute, Assistant TK Teacher as well as a Campus Supervisor. I got married to my long time sweet heart in 2018 on a roof top over looking Disneyland (HUGE DISNEY FAN) and we had our first baby in 2020.
Here at Prancing Princess Pony I absolutely love what I do and love giving children the opportunity to experience such an incredible animal! With my background in education I try my best to create a fun learning environment for my students to practice key developmental skills by playing, exploring, singing, touching, learning, having free time and much more!
Hi everyone, my name is Cory Van Rooyen!
I am Brittney's mom and love being her partner and assistant at Prancing Princess Pony! Being able to work together is something we both cherish greatly. We both absolutely love working with children and, like Brittney, I am a HUGE Disney fan as well. She got the Disney bug from me!
I have been working with students for 6 years at the Oakley Union Elementary School District with the literacy support team. I have worked with 100s of students over the years mostly being Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade. I also have 2 1/2 years experience being a campus supervisor which allowed me to work with students of every grade level. With this background in education we try our best to gear our classes to be educational yet FUN!
