Professional Summary:

I am a motivated and competent rider and Equine muscular-skeletal practitioner, trained in South Africa. Prior to my training at BSET Academy, I was foremost a work and competition rider in the disciplines of Eventing, Show jumping and Dressage. Throughout this time my interest to develop myself into a professional in the industry has always been a great motivator , with this I have pushed to not only improve myself as a rider but to put as much as possible behind my name ,as to put me in good stead for a life in the industry. After my time as assistant manager at a rehabilitation yard in South Africa, I decided to take myself overseas to experience the highest level of Equine sport and to study the competition horse, in multiple different disciplines. In my time throughout Europe I have used every opportunity to hone my skills as a rider, improve my management skills and develop my eye as a practitioner. I believe through the experience I have gained as a rider and a yard manager, I would be able to develop into an invaluable part of a team. I am a positive and easy going person at heart, however in the same breathe I hold a steadfast dedication in all my work with horses and the industry that I love. I am always willing to learn and improve myself wherever I can and be dynamic in my workplace
