I have many years experience in the horse industry. I specialise in retraining standardbreds for dressage and pleasure horses but have worked with all breeds. I have a fascination for nutrition for all animals and have studied extensively in this area. I can help with most nutrition/feeding questions as well as training, general wellbeing and care.

Experience in the area

Retraining Standardbreds in addition to other breeds for dressage and pleasure. Working with abused horses, taking horses from skeletons to show ring stars, teaching them to trust the human race again.
