Tell us a bit about your background.

I have owned horses since I was young. Starting at Pony Club and continuing until now!!

I have competed in all the Olympic Disciplines and still compete in Dressage and the odd jumping competition with the Horse Riders Club Association of Victoria and Equestrian Australia. I worked in the Thoroughbred industry, most notably with Trainers Mark and Jim Houlahan. With them, I experienced top level racing on the flat and jumping. I thank them for my great grounding in all things racing and their horsemanship. Many of their methods I still use today. I trained in my own right for 10 years and had numerous winners and even trained a city winner. I am currently an Acknowledged Off the Track Retrainer. I have recently re-trained one Standardbred gelding and really enjoy the Standardbreds attitude and nature. I love to train and work with a wide variety of personalities and work them out. Making sure that they find their niche. I love to learn from the horse's I train as well. Each horse brings something new and exciting to work out and with. I believe you can learn something from everyone.

What is your favourite thing about the standardbred breed?

I find the standardbred breed to be a trainable and good natured one. They will give anything a try and are very generous.

What do you enjoy most about the work you do?

I love working with horses of all sorts and am excited to be taking on the job of a Hero Re-trainer as it will allow me to train Standardbred horses. I love working with horses and watching them understand what I want, improving and growing with confidence when they understand the question. I also love matching people to their perfect partner and then watching the partnership grow. I enjoy updates and pictures and these new partnerships get out and about.

What do you enjoy doing outside of your regular work?

I am pretty much always with my horses. I do like to do a bit of painting and drawing. Although I am no artist! I love to compete on my homebred gelding Mario who is a successful dressage horse.
