Butterscotch Dun Connemara Gelding born in 2010.
He is my business card and partner of all things wonderful.
He travels with me all over Europe
and is educated in many disciplines including
Liberty, Freedom Riding, Academic Art of Riding up to Piaffe in-hand and under the saddle, Parelli Natural Horsemanship level 5, Stockmanship, Archery, La Garrocha, Working Equitation
and much more.
My boy melts the hearts of many on first meeting and has me in a spell of love every moment I am with him.
Smokey Cream Mini-Shetland Gelding born 2013.
Also known as Mr. Cool or Mr. Floof he is
a welcome addition to our family.
The giggle making machine is certainly a character and will challenge not just your horsemanship skills but also your heart.
He has started his education at Liberty and a little Academic work, who knows, this little floofster just might learn it all.
We are not in a hurry and we are just happy to offer him a nice home.
Dun Lusitano X Gelding born 2019.
Marky is not my horse but I help take care of him and am responsible for his education from wild child, to mild, to a fabulous partner in all disciplines.
Alongside his owner we have some amazing plans for this handsome guy and guess what?
You can watch his full training and ongoing process in my Online Training Platform.
GGWH Members get full access to his journey where I teach every skill all horses need in order to be successful in our world.
Marques is wonderful character, who very much likes people, especially when they figure out what he wants
and what he needs.

My muse, my love, she left this physical earth much
sooner than we ever wanted.
Never forgotten she was also the inspiration of my award winning book:
‘The horse that broke two legs & survived’!
It feels only right to keep her mentioned here.
She was my Parelli Levels training horse and from around 2015 due to health complications she was retired from actual work.
She also learned the same education as Kheelen and had been with me since she was 7 months old.
I miss her indescribably and am so thankful we met.
I believe in horses with people and/or environment problems.
" I am and probably always will be, the odd duck"
And that is okay.
I was the little girl that was pony mad from the time I could talk.
It stayed with me through my teens.
Also my twenties, thirties and here we are now in the forties.
I do not model myself, my clothes and equipment on the modern day image of Dressage;
I model myself on what is comfortable, what suits my horse as an individual and
work, play and train with the horse mentally, physically
The horses to me, are a way of life, not just a hobby,
therefore I see it as my lifes work to know more than just the average.
I will always be your best teacher, if your best is good enough.
I practice what I preach and I am always honest.
I promise to respect you and your horse as you are and to build from there.
