BHS Stage 1 BHS Stage 2
Although I did not grow up around horses, I rode as a child and last year, after a 10 year break from riding and completion of a degree in European Studies and a Masters in International Public Policy and Diplomacy from UCC, I decided to do the Equestrian Studies course in Colaiste Stiofain Naofa. I help out at a small livery yard where I used to stable my horse (now sadly deceased). I also help the kids with their ponies and assist with bringing them to shows. I have BHS stage 1 and 2 (except the lunging) and have helped out in livery yards and riding schools over the last 2 years. I have not yet worked in a competition environment, but I am a fast and willing learner.
I am especially interested in natural horsemanship methods and always take a quiet and calm approach when dealing with horses.
I do not have loads of riding experience, but I am a quiet and confident rider, and I am always learning more!
