I have had a lifelong interest in horses competing my two horses at riding club, British Eventing and county shows.
I first became interested in Bowen after seeing the effects of the therapy on a particularly anxious intermediate eventer mare. Almost overnight she became much calmer and easier to handle and ride. I was amazed to see how the light-touch of the therapy brought about such a change in her behaviour.
I qualified to treat people in July 2005 and horses in April 2007. This included gaining an Anatomy and Physiology Certificate and First Aid at Work Certificate.
