In coming here, chances are you are seeking guidance for you and your horse or perhaps you are seeking a more holistic approach to your riding and the general care of your horse.
Potentially, you are searching for reasons behind a negative behaviour that your horse may be presenting - such as head shaking, high head carriage, stubbornness, running on, or bucking - because in spite of being told to ‘kick him on’, you just know there is more to the behaviours than mere disobedience.
Aside from the services I have successfully undertaken for many years, I will soon be launching a series of online courses to extend that offering.
If you would like to be one of the first to access these teachings and benefit from a heavily discounted rate please enquire using the form below today and I will keep you informed pre-launch.
Disobedience is rarely the reason for a horse presenting a negative behaviour. Horses certainly do not intentionally set out to annoy us. They do, on the whole want to please us in spite of our alien ways towards them.
The content in my website, my books, and my online courses will empower you to build on the relationship you already enjoy with the horses in your care by walking with me along a holistic path to enrichment and harmony.
From a young age, I have shared a deep empathy with horses. My life with them has taken me from riding ponies truly free as a child, to being under pressure to conform to tradition as a teenager. I qualified as a BHSAI in 1994. Along with starting, schooling, and rehabilitating horses, I have coached riders of all ages and abilities. These days, my time is invaluable in the re-education of horse carers in gently guiding them into the 21st Century, and away from outdated, often abusive training systems, riding techniques, and beliefs that continue to plague the equestrian world.
Horse Riding in the 21st Century
A Must Read
‘Horse Riding in the 21st Century: Discover the route to your success’, is deemed a ‘must read’ by Jenny Rolfe International Dressage Trainer, endorsed by Suzanne Rogers Animal Welfare Consultant and Equine Behaviourist, and endorsed by Ros Jones BVSc MRCVS. It is also a recommended read on the popular UK based ‘Applied Equine Behaviour’ online training course.
Our other animal friends & You
My website was predominantly set up due to my deep passion, and welfare concerns for horses. However, I was compelled to include all the other animals who share our lives, and you too; you might sometimes need that bit of extra help. Inside you will find information on other services I offer to help keep you and your animals in physical and emotional tip-top condition.
Passion & Specialities
My passion is to steer equestrians away from Dickensian traditions and outdated teaching/learning methods handed down from generation to generation and from teacher to pupil. Specialising in powerful heart–centred energy healing and communication, I also help animals suffering from emotional, behavioural, and physical discomfort, using a fusion of energetic based modalities.
We're all very busy. So why not relax and let the benefits of my intuitive holistic expertise appear right in your inbox. Learn about how I can help you, at your convenience. That way, both you and your animal will get full benefit of my content when you are focused.
