Based in the West Coast of the South Island, I teach stable management, riding and horse care and have worked for many years in the equine industry as a riding instructor, track work rider, farrier, horse trek guide, breaker, groom to some of the world’s top riders and professional riders/trainers of sport horses both here and in England. I also compete to a high level Eventing throughout New Zealand, training my own young horses through to National Championship level.
Currently I train and break young horses, teach children and adults the basic fundamentals as well as advanced concepts of dressage and jumping and hold entry level seminars on farriery and equine hoof care, feeding and nutrition and cross country techniques. And I’m a farrier in my spare time.
I hold a certificate in Equine Studies from Telford Rural Polytechnic (1996)
I love teaching and have found my niche to be in the instruction and education area of this industry and am passionate about passing on my knowledge and experiences to other equestrians.
