Heidi grew up in the horse industry and is educated in an array of areas in the equine business. As a child and young adult, Heidi was involved in her parent’s equine facility that hosted a wide range of driving and riding clinics. She is a 1995 graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Animal Science.

Since graduation Heidi has been teaching riding, training horses and showing in a variety of disciplines both as an amateur and a professional. Driving has always been a part of Heidi’s life, whether it was grooming for her dad, Ray Johnson, inventor of the Glory and Butterfly Bits, or driving and competing herself.

In conjunction with her love and devotion to horses, Heidi also managed a career in commercial and residential landscape design and installation.

Heidi, her husband and two young children reside in the quiet village of Campton, NH. Currently, Heidi is underway in the newest chapter of her life as the owner of DD Rapps.
