Horses have always been my passion and once my children had grown up, I got my first horse; something I had waited almost 30 years for. It was soon apparent all was not well with Alfie. I retired him and spent the last 3 years of his life enjoying his company and making sure he was comfortable. I learned so much through him and he inspired me to learn more.
After seeing the increased comfort and mobility from his sessions with an equine bodyworker, I dedicated myself to this profession. I completed courses in equine anatomy and physiology, functional anatomy along with dissection classes and a module in saddle fitting and farriery over a 2 year period at Writtle College.
Upon completion of the modules, I went on to do Equinologys "Equine Body Work" course. This was very intensive with a 6 month externship, which gave me the qualification I needed to apply massage professionally.
As well as my equine bodywork i also work part time at a local animal sanctuary and help out regularly on a heavy horse yard.
