About me

A qualified equine sports massage therapist with a degree in public health. I have applied my background as an engagement specialist in the health industry for 12 years to start a business that is about treating horses and riders as a team. The idea for Muscle Sense came about after I had my baby Tom, I was navigating my changed body and there wasn’t support that encompassed both myself and my horse.

I have incorporated my personal values and the principles of education, empowerment and capacity building to support owners to help their horses and themselves. Regular bodywork and physical training is imperative for performance, not matter the level you compete or ride. I know first-hand how expensive this can be, so my goal is to educate and support my clients to help themselves and their horses.

I’m naturally a solid build, love food and always having to work on trying to maintain a healthy weight. I understand the struggle and have a great deal of knowledge to share from having worked in health for 12 years.

I love fitness and health and am particularly passionate about the pelvic floor. These intricate muscles of our body are overlooked for their role and importance. I am a mum, I work, I ride and compete so keeping fit needs to be functional, quick and suit my lifestyle. I don’t have time for the gym so I don’t expect the people I teach to either. The training I promote is unique to your body, quick and easily incorporated into your riding plans.

I love eventing and get really excited when I have a clear 65cm cross country. I enjoy giving anything a go with my clydesdale brumby Denny and have come to really enjoy dressage.

I’m a mum a rider and compete

I understand being busy, time poor and that sometimes not everyone can afford bodywork as regularly as their horse needs. Keeping fit needs to be functional, quick and suit my lifestyle. I don’t have time for the gym so I don’t expect the people I teach to either.

I’m driven to help others succeed, no matter your riding ability or discipline 

The idea for Muscle Sense came about after I had my baby Tom, I was navigating my changed body and there wasn’t local support that encompassed both myself and my horse. Everyone’s situation is unique and I understand first hand that there isn’t a one size fits all approach.
