After an extensive equestrian education throughout my teens, I sat my BHSAI shortly before my eighteenth birthday. This initial focus on coaching broadened into retraining point-to-point horses and producing eventers and show hunters. It was during this time that I became aware of having an intuitive, energetic empathy to the raw emotions that horses experience.
Leaving the competition world behind I settled in the Scottish Highlands, developing a successful trail riding business to compliment the more leisurely trekking facilities nearby. Coaching local horse owners, dealing with staff, and many diverse customers, motivated me to take training in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, augmenting previous academic study into psychology and communications.
After assisting animal welfare authorities break a horrific case involving over twenty horses, I became involved with the training and rehabilitation of the animals rescued by the ILPH in Aboyne. Working with unhandled horses was the perfect environment to realise that many NLP precepts apply to horses as well as humans, and can be integrated into training systems to ease communication.
An introduction to natural horsemanship methods led me to many years of further study into these techniques. I incorporated many of these concepts into my handling of horses and continue to do so to this day. Over twenty years ago, I became aware that my psychic abilities had opened to a new level of interspecies communication as my telepathic skills flourished; I could intuit the thoughts of horses.
This continuing development of telepathic ability was the result of a deliberate search for understanding into my life-long psychic experiences. An extensive quest for knowledge was augmented by over twenty years of study through a druidic college which developed my psychic abilities, allowing me to intuit the emotional and physical state of the horses (and humans). Continuing to work with traumatised animals pushed me to do more to help the horses in my care, and then I discovered the healing benefits of Reiki.
After a lifetimes dedication to the care of horses and with over twenty years of experience in telepathic-interspecies communication and Reiki practice, I feel honoured to have been given this opportunity to help the horses who share our lives.
