I have been around horses almost my whole life, from working at a local riding school when I was eleven, getting rides on anything and everything, just as a lot of kids do.
I have competed in showing, dressage, driving trials, as well as breaking and bringing on youngsters, retraining horses, in fact almost anything that involved horses - except jumping - I like to keep my feet firmly on the ground! My passion for horses has led to trail riding in Montana, Colorado and North Carolina; riding Arab stallions in Egypt; Conemara ponies in Ireland; driving singles and pairs - and eventually, through looking for treatments for my elderly Thoroughbred mare, to training with Jim Masterson (see the "About EPB" page for more background on Jim, his methods and achievements). Since beginning to work with Jim in late 2010, I have worked on over 50 horses, and have a well-established client base. I completed my training in July 2011, and am now a Masterson Method Certified Practitioner, one of only a handful in the UK. I also mentor students who are going through the Masteron Method certification process, have worked in the US with Jim as an Assistant Instructor on the Advanced 5-day Course, and am now approved to run One-day Masterson Method courses. I have worked as an Equine Massage Therapist in the UK, France and the USA, and am happy to travel (almost!) anywhere to treat horses.
