Will keep this short and sweet ….

Me .. im a 32 yr old single mum living on the outskirts of sydney on a small acreage … currently i was planning to finish my studies and become a school teacher when my 4 yr old twins start school … but then i got a better idea and am going to have a good crack to see if i can make a living from my passion … horses :)

Before kids came along i worked full time in the industry. I spent a few years full time teaching and working in an equestrian center, pretraining race horses and working in a small Warmblood stud. Kids took me away and a horse brought me back ...

Follow my journey and learn where my love of horses came from ... i will share all my ups downs as i give myself 12months to be ready for my first client ... myhorsetrainingstories will be a laugh if nothing else as i do nothing the easy way .. Thanks Nic

will also be blogging on ... myhorsetrainingstories.com
