Our Story

My aim is to:

"Bring the best of both rider, horse and dog so their time together is one of bonding."

I am always seeking ways of improving what I do and increase the benefits to both horse and rider.  It is about you and your horse or dog.

I have had a long association with horses which began as a child and was lost somewhere in adulthood but came back with gusto.

Ozzie (Osvaldo) was my soul horse. He was entrusted to us from his owners after he retired from racing. He was once doted as a possible Melbourne Cup winner but  ended up going to Hong Kong and having a successful career. He passed away from Colic but  has inspired me to do all I can for horses

Tigger

English pointer X Dalmatian

Tigger has been with us for nearly 8 years and came to us as a foster dog who had lots of trust issues. She was rescued from a puppy farm, of which she had already had 2 litters by the time she was two. Her original name was Tinka but she jumped like the character Tigger and it just stuck.

Bella

Australian Red Heeler X Border Collie

Bella started as another resuce dog who was chained up in the back yard after being brought for a friend for a new baby but she never went any where. This lady loves ball and to think she was chained up breaks my heart. She loves and plays hard.

Ruby is a sweet soul who gave her previous owners two litters and then they no longer wanted her. She came to us with such energy and yearning to fit in and she just makes our clan complete.
