I started riding at age 10 in Stellenbosch at Annandale Riding School. The majority of the horses were rescued racehorses with problems – so we learnt a lot about being run away with on outrides!! Was a completely horse mad child and read only horse books, bedroom covered in horse posters etc . I’m afraid the popstars completely missed out!

As we couldn’t afford a horse – I was given a rescued donkey in 1967 and had him for 4 years – riding around the neighbourhood. We learnt an awful lot about escape artists.

I stopped riding around 17 – schoolwork got in the way, followed by University studies.

Once married and established in a home in Johannesburg I started riding again in 1986 – on a friend’s horse she soon persuaded me to buy in 1987 – which is when I acquired my first horse ‘Babyshoes’ (ex racehorse Thoroughbred gelding) ! I had to say a sad goodbye to him in March 2009 after over 21 years together.
In 1988 we bought our current residence that has 5 stables – so started small livery yard with the help of Oscar, my groom.
In 1991 bought second horse Ali Shar – also an ex-racehorse, who I rode in dressage. and sadly had to put down in Jan 2005

I have competed in dressage to Elementary level – but try to avoid competitions .In March 1999 I attended a Natural Healing course for animals, which included Reiki and Aromatherapy as well as an introduction to TTOUCH. Later on in the same year I stopped working fulltime in Computer Technical Support and started my own business in 2000. I now consult  in computer technical support on a part time basis as well as giving TTOUCH clinics and private consultations. I have an LPG Equine machine which is used to massage horses. I also give aromatherapy and Reiki treatments to horses.

In January 2001 I attended my first 5 day TTEAM workshop and have been using the skills acquired in these workshops in the other therapeutic work I do with horses.

I have been organising the TTEAM clinics since 2002.

In 2004 I started the TTOUCH for Companion Animals programme and graduated as Companion Animal Practitioner level 1 in October 2006.

As well as organising the practitioner training clinics for TTTEAM I give 1, 2 or 3 day clinics as well as private consultations for both Horses and Companion animals - travelling to all sorts of interesting places !

March 2011 graduated Companion Animal Practitioner level 2 and in April 2014 as Instructor for Horses
