Over 20 years equine experience. Completed work towards saddle fitting certificate
My husband and I own our own business here in Hamilton New Zealand, in Civil Engineering and Project Management, where I manage the office, accounting, resource management, and other administrative duties.
I have worked with horses since was around 10. Not coming from a horsey family, this began at the local pony clubs and riding schools - with reluctant parents in tow!
I have experience as a working pupil/rider grooming competing (riding) throughout New Zealand including representing the Waikato Dressage Team and Young Talent Identification Squad.
I have owned and trained numerous horses of my own as well as having ridden for other yards in Dressage and Showing with very competitive results including a personal highlight of New Zealand Reserve Champion in Dressage
Although no specific qualifications, I have over 20 years direct and relevant experiance in equine health, training, riding, and more recently breeding.
Over the past 5 years I have taken a break from competition while we worked on our business and yard getting these established. I am now getting back focused on my schooling and competitition riding in 2018 and have some exciting young horses coming through.
In addition to our business, we own and operate a small yard here in Waikato where we have recently started our own breeding programme as well as training/schooling our own horses and sometimes others.
Dressage is my area of interest and specialty. I have trained and competed through to level 5/6, and currently have young stock coming through (currently all under 2 yo).
All forms of riding relating to my area of specialty - dressage. I am a very conscientious rider who is patient and adaptable with experience in a range of training methods. I have trained and competed up to level 5 Open Medium.
Competed at regional and national level dressage competitions with New Zealand Reserve Champion in Dressage as a personal highlight. I have competed up to level 5 Open Medium.
