As a child I was lucky to have access to ponies and riding. I still have very fond memories of carefree, saddle-free explorations of the countryside on ponies – with nothing but a jam sandwich and a bottle of water to sustain me.

With more than thirty years as a mental health nurse, within the NHS, I feel I bring extensive skills and experience to the role of trustee.

Family interest has meant that I have maintained a connection with horses and have been able to invest in their care and recuperation.

The Here4Horses team, deal with some of the most tragic cases and I have seen the worst of cruelty and neglect. I have also experienced the joy of watching their return to full health and carefree living.

I am naturally compassionate, creative and always keen to do the right thing. I hope these traits prove to be valuable assets to the Here4Horses team, helping us all to meet and exceed, the expectations of our supporters, donors and volunteers.

'Welcome to pony paradise’

'A moment watching happy, healthy horses is always good for the soul'

'All the hard work
we do is worth it to see their happy faces'

‘A day without a nap is like a cupcake without frosting’

‘It is very special to see them fully recovered and enjoying life again’
