I am 40 years old and have worked as a professional pet sitter for over 9 years as my own business, but have house sat for people for over 16 years within my local equine community.
Following a National Diploma in Horse Studies at Walford College of Agriculture Baschurch Shrewsbury, I continued on to achieve a BSc Honours Degree in Equine Science at the University of Wales Aberystwyth.
Growing up in a rural location on a small holding I have worked with, cared for and been involved with a wide variety of animals all of my life. On completion of my degree I accepted a job working at Westpoint Stud, where I handled youngsters and broke in horses during the winter months. During the summer months we mainly concentrated on stud work. Work included care and handling of stallions, plus sole charge of the stud if my employer was on holiday.
