My career with horses began at an early age with a weekend job at a Sydney riding school. I soon took an interest in dressage and show jumping and quickly discovered many owners wanted me to compete on their horses. I began breaking-in horses during my mid-teens. At university I undertook a science degree and later was awarded a doctorate in physiology. During this time I continued to educate horses and compete at a high level in the show jumping arena.
Subsequent to being awarded my PhD, I pursued research interests overseas in North America and Europe. While living overseas I continued to work with horses on a casual basis. I received several contracts to start horses in in different countries. But I also worked privately for the general public.
Michele and I continue our higher education in horse training by studying the principles of good horsemen in Australia, North America and Europe.
