My story in equestrianism began when I met my partner Sophie, who ran an equine rescue centre in Leeds. She invited me down to volunteer on the yard after I had made fun of her claims of the hard work involved in horse care. I was quickly proved very wrong indeed, but that’s not to say I was put off in the slightest. I had caught the bug and shortly gained employment in the world of equine rescue and strived to learn all I could. It has since been my dream to work with these wonderful creatures.
I wanted to be in a position to help equines of all shapes and sizes and quickly learned that hoof health was often an area of concern. Subsequently, I enrolled on a diploma in equine podiatry in 2015 with Equine Podiatry Training LTD. I qualified with a diploma in June 2018 and am a fully-fledged member of the EPA UK.
