Your Consultation…

I will visit you and your horse in your own surroundings for a private consultation. A detailed history will be taken covering all aspects of your horse’s behaviour, environment, management and training which will help me establish any underlying causes of the unwanted behaviour.

This will require a quiet, private place where disturbances will be minimal to enable you to get the most from your consultation.

Then observing you and your horse interacting naturally will provide me with a fuller picture, ensuring the most suitable behavioural solutions are tailored around you and your horse’s life.

During the visit I’ll provide you with immediate advice on how to manage the problem and create positive change in your horse.

Following the visit you’ll receive a full written report about your horse’s behaviour, the motivations behind it and a tailored behaviour modification plan.

This will include everything you’ll need to move forward positively together, whilst strengthening your connection with your horse.

Equine Behaviourist - 

I am one of around only 20 academically and practically qualified consultants registered with The Society of Equine Behaviour Consultants (SEBC). SEBC is the only professional body regulating the practice of registered Equine specific Behaviour Consultants in the UK.

Having had an upbringing surrounded by animals and riding virtually as soon as I could walk my affinity with animals, and particularly horses, was ‘in the blood’ from a young age.

Although having an avid fascination of animal behaviour, it was through unknowingly buying a horse who dangerously reared and had stereotypical behaviour (‘stable vices’) that drove me to find the answers. Answers which no extent of well known trainers nor popular training methods could offer. So, with an Equine Honours degree in hand and a lifetime of practical experience owning horses, I was accepted onto the rigorous Equine Behaviour course at Warwickshire College. There I was fortunate to study and graduate under one of the worlds leading experts in her field, internationally renowned Dr. Debbie Marsden.


Taking the best approach to help your horse…

I will listen to what concerns you, watch your horse carefully and report in practical terms that any horse owner can understand and follow. My approach is calm and empathetic because I understand how stressful challenging behaviour can be to cope with.

Your horse is unique; his environment, own experiences and motivations behind his actions are carefully taken into account. Uncovering why your horse exhibits the undesirable behaviour is key to modifying it. By applying the theories of behavioural science from a holistic and diagnostic viewpoint, I will help you understand your horse better. I promote only safe and positive methods to get you and your horse back on track.

Continuing my professional development by attending CPD courses and seminars equip me with the latest insights and findings so that I can provide my clients with the most up to date and comprehensive advice.

I am driven by the astounding progress I see between owners and their horses. This is often by clients who following my advice have made simple and inexpensive changes.

I look forward to assisting you to enhanced understanding of your equine friend, allowing you both to enjoy a more harmonious and successful partnership.
