I have been fascinated and entranced by horses from a very young age. When I was 8 years old, I inherited my sister's pony and my journey into the equine world officially began!
I've grown up around horses all my life, and I live on a farm situated near Uplawmoor in East Renfrewshire with many horses and a few other animals too! Including our resident 'micro' pig Wilbur!
My husband and children own horses of their own on the farm and I love helping them not only with their riding but with any problems they come across. We have had several which have come to us with problems that we have successfully rehabilitated!
I also love to ride and compete and I run a small livery yard.
I am a UKCC level 2 coach.
I am a BHS Accredited Professional Coach.
I am an accredited Pony Club Instructor and I was a Pony Club Games Trainer for 10 years.
I am a BHS Ride Safe Trainer and Examiner .
I am a fully qualified member of The Society of Equine Behaviour Consultants.
I took a degree in Animal Production Science in Edinburgh where I managed to wrangle my thesis into studying some aspects on Social Behaviour on Exmoor ponies.
