I have loved horses since I was a small child living in a big city.
I feel very privileged to be able to spend some time with horses every day.
The feeling of calm and connection between my horse and myself makes all the hard work worthwhile!
I find it very difficult to put into words what horses mean to me and how they have enriched my life with teachings and insights since getting my first pony at 7 years old... what I can express is they have taken me on a journey and taught me so much about myself, others and the world around me, that has penetrated my being... and they have done it with no words at all.
"I am a positive person, and it's hard not to be when I am working with horses. I have been with horses as long as I can remember. I love the connection between the horse and human, thats what makes me happy".
"I am an enthusiastic and happy person. I have always loved to be around horses and to help people. To be able to combine them both in the work we do at Horse Resource is the best".
"I am amazed at the way the human horse connection develops in a very natural way. It is a great example of how time in, or with nature provides therapeutic benefits. I am delighted to support horse resource as a mentor, yard boy, financial contributor and cheerleader in chief for this remarkable practise."
As a Master carpenter my skills have not been put to the test in the same way as constructing safe secure barns for horses has- their size and power used to scare me but seeing their peaceful sentient qualities whilst helping develop horse resources' site has changed that perspective for me and now I love to spend time just being with the horses.
