About Me

A Bit About Me

My first love affair was with horses, I have always been amazed by the beauty, grace and power of horses and their willingness to allow us to hold them captive. A favourite quote is:

“The horse. Here is nobility without conceit, friendship without envy, beauty without vanity. A willing servant, yet never a slave.” Robert Duncan

Throughout my life, whatever my responsibilities have been, my love for horses has never diminished. Perhaps one of the main reasons being that no matter how much time I spend with these amazing animals I never stop learning! My own mare, Holly, is now over 20 years of age, she has been with me since she was just over 3 years old and still manages to surprise me! I learned long ago not to take anything for granted.

As horse owners, we are constantly bombarded with information on new training techniques, advice about feedstuffs and health supplements and I found recently, confusing information about worming preparations and programmes.

I trained as a Parasitologist – the study of creatures that live in or on another animal. I decided to put that training to better use and concentrate on the worms that are present in horses. The decision was based partly on the problems I have seen and experienced with my own mare; Holly, and of those in friends horses.

I understand that your horse is more than a pet and that owning a horse is a way of life. I have the capability to apply my science expertise and my passion for Equines, to benefit not only my own mare but your horse too.
