My raison d’être is to find ways to produce not just a happy athlete but a true partner. When I teach, my aim is to help my students to achieve that goal.
I have made a point of studying a range of horsemanship and riding techniques to be able to get the best out of the horses I work with – from classical riding to cowboy dressage, in-hand training, clicker and natural horsemanship techniques.
I live in Kent, with my other half, Trevor Pierce and 6 horses, 2 dogs and 3 cats. Trev, as well as being my long term partner, is a qualified counsellor who regularly counsels me on the human element involved in any horse training, so that I may get the best I can not just from myself, but from the people I work with.
There is a saying that I have heard from Mark Rashid, that has always stuck with me “it’s not just how you are with horses; its how you are”. As I get older I realise more and more each day how true that is and I try each day to be better.
I have the privilege of being selected to be on the Philippe Karl teacher training course, starting in September 2014. This blog is to share my experiences, thoughts and learning as I go through the three year course.
I really enjoy sharing what I have learned with others and helping them and their horses to reach their true potential. I teach individual lessons or small clinics, if you would like to find out more please get in touch.
