Cumberland Grange Equine Body Therapy and Services offers soft tissue sessions to passionate horse owners to help them achieve maximum performance and wellbeing in their horses.
My core modalitiy is Equine Body Therapy (founded by Sue Parker).
I am a mother and part-time Accounts Officer who has always had a passion for horses and their welfare.
I grew up and worked on farming properties in Victoria’s Western District and now, with my family, I run a small agistment property near Warrnambool.
After beginning riding as a child, I followed my sister along the path of classical dressage and ultimately spent time in Portugal as a working pupil with the famous Master, the late Nuno Oliviera. I continue my journey in the art of classical dressage assisted by regular visits from another mentor from Portugal.
We are a very 'horsey' family – my daughters are also keen and successful riders who have spent many years at Pony Club and represented their zone at State level in dressage and eventing. My husband has a history of playing polo, campdrafting and stock horses.
Some years ago, I inherited a young mare with many body issues and have sort professionals that have the patience, kindness and knowledge to help. This has led to study as an owner trimmer and I now maintain all of the family’s seven horses successfully barefoot.
This quest also led me to meet Sue Parker and the results have been so remarkable that I was inspired to learn more about Equine Body Therapy and ultimately become an Equine Body Therapy practitioner in 2016.
I have since worked with many horses and clients from a variety of disciplines. I contiually complete workshops to build on my skills and knowledge to meet every horse's needs.
