It’s been all go recently, and these past weeks have left me feeling incredibly grateful for the support I’ve received from all my clients (old and new!) keeping me busy since getting back to work post lockdown.
Volunteer work is one of the best ways to further your equestrian skills, and is an excellent form of continual professional development. I’ve been lucky enough to spend a fair amount of my time travelling last year, and this has provided me with opportunity to expand my knowledge of horse care, training, and riding in different countries.
Having been around horses my whole life, I was beginning to have withdrawal symptoms after spending my first few weeks without them on a recent trip to Australia. The horsey bug, if you’re lucky enough to catch it, doesn’t go away with time – it’s rather a terminal diagnosis that leaves you calling out every horse you see in a passing field and still getting that gleeful flutter when you swing your leg over for the thousandth time.
