Having ridden horses since I was 3 and competed in a wide variety of disciplines, I first trained as an Equine Massage Therapist in 2013, adding various modalities to my tool box of skills over the years and continue studies as an Equine Osteopath.
Over the years as an event rider and Arabian race horse trainer, I have picked up a number of significant injuries and found it surprisingly difficult to mentally and physically return to riding which led me to train as a rider injury rehabilitation & biomechanics coach, specialising in performance psychology as an Advanced Centre10 Coach. I utilise a number of coaching techniques including the franklin method and anatomy in motion, combined with classical and natural horsemanship methods. I am an Approved Working Equitation Coach and specialise in working with Arabian and Iberian breeds.
In being able to help to start to improve the horse and riders’ way of going whatever the discipline, I saw the importance of having the correct tack fitted. Having used Solution Saddles on my own horses for a number of years there was a natural progression to become an advisor and in studying with SaddleFit4 Life I hope to shortly qualify as an Equine Ergonomist. By adding bit and bridle fitting to my services I hope to offer a really effective whole horse and rider approach, enabling both to move together in a harmonious and optimised way, whilst improving the welfare of both.
