Getting to the bottom of your horse behaviour problems, and resolving them from the root cause up. Behaviour, from bucking to crib biting, happens for a reason; which our horses are trying to communicate to us. Identifying and understanding the horse’s reasons for unwanted behaviour helps find the best way forward; to better understanding, relationships and safer experiences for us to enjoy. My own degree and graduate studies into horse behaviour and professional experience within the horse world have taught me how to diagnose behavioural issues, and construct and coach individual programs for change. My continued commitment to my own lifelong learning, as well as to education for others helps me to continue to deliver best practice.
I offer equine behaviour & welfare consultations, as well as instruction and coaching in horse training, including competition horses, across South and West Wales, and am available to travel to other areas.
Not only have I worked with horses for many years, first as groom then as a trainer and behaviour consultant, I am also their lifelong student. My formal qualifications include an Honours Degree in Equine Science from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth and an MSc in Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling from the University of Southampton. I have conducted in-depth studies in Welsh hill pony behaviour, as well as the impact of training method on horse welfare and the horse-human relationship.
These days I spend most of my week working with people seeking knowledge that will help them improve their horsemanship skills and resolve their training and horse behavioural problems. I like to provide the most accurate information I can on all aspects of horse behaviour so others can make informed decisions, actively enhancing their own horsemanship journey.
