ℹ️ Biography

Horses have always been a huge part of my life; they have brought me so much enjoyment and purpose and I really couldn’t imagine my life without them. I studied at Bishop Burton College and left with a Business Management Degree and my BHSAI. I spent a lot of time gaining experience on different training yards in Scotland, England and Ireland before starting my own training/rehabilitation yard on my family farm in the North of Scotland. Of all the horses I have worked with, there was one horse that changed me and made me realise how little I knew about training horses!! He was the best teacher I could ever have had and I feel very fortunate to have met him. It was this change that drew me to the western world. I know live in South Lincolnshire with my husband and little girl (3.5 years) where I run a training/rehabilitation yard. I absolutely love my job; it really doesn’t feel like work when I get to spend my days with these amazing animals. I have a retired eventing mare and my wonderful Highland Forbes, who I now share with my little girl. We are looking forward to getting more involved in the Western Community and it is through this that led me to volunteer as WES Youth Officer. I want to help the young ones learn, appreciate these wonderful animals, and of course have lots of fun along the way.
