About Me

The early years
I was very lucky to be brought up on a farm, surrounded by animals from a young age.
As an active member of Angus Pony Club I went on to represent the club in all the main interbranch teams and reached the pinnacle of the pony club test system by attaining the Pony Club A Test.

The CV
Initially I worked at a mixed Vet practise in the Borders, where I gained the Veterinary Nurse qualification.
As well as my VN work, I kept up riding and horse studies then sat the BHS stages 1 and 2.
I then left the practice, to further my BHS qualifications and gain experience in the horse industry, passing stage 3, PTT, stage 4, IT, and I Stable Managers, all before the young age of 24!!!

Highlights include working for Iain Couttie BHSI, training at Gleneagles, and Yard Manager at Millfield School ( a private school for children with a very special sports department which included a spectacular equestrian centre)

I then spent two years in New Zealand and Australia, where I worked with Grand Prix Dressage horses and even managed some experience on a cattle station.

The here and now.
1999 I came back to Scotland, and set up as a self employed freelance instructor / rider.
My work is varied, which is the way I like it; plenty to keep me on my toes
