Having previously worked within the human health industry, I began my career in equine manual therapy in 2008 as an Equinology student. I have continued professional development with Equinology courses in Australia along with a Bachelor of Equine Science, Neurokinetic Therapy and currently undertaking post graduate program in Animal Sports Therapies and Rehabilitation with the Academy of Animal Sports Science. I have ridden horses at amateur show jumping level in Australia and briefly worked in training yards in Europe and South Africa.
I am highly motivated by deepening and broadening my skill and knowledge base and thoroughly enjoy being a part of the learning and educational process.

I have completed various units in the Swan TAFE Equine Management Certificate through the years.
I am also a Centered Riding Instructor Lvl 1.
Perth, Australia Jan 2012
Centered Riding Instructors course participant - conducted by Peggy Brown.
Regarding back issues, Centered Riding has helped in my own riding immensely, not only in my position but in the horses movement also.
I have worked with horses and owners from recreational riding to most of the Equestrian competition disciplines. It is truly rewarding when a owner sees and feels the benefits of Equine Sports Massage in their horse. I am particularly interested in how rider position affects the horses way of going and the resulting effects on the musculature of the horse.
My own riding interests are in dressage and jumping and I groomed for a friend for many years at local shows.
Due to back issues I have used physio led Pilates as a rehab system which has greatly aided my riding.
