Donna is a very knowledgeable and passionate horsewoman with many years experience of working with all types of equines from riding school ponies to high level dressage horses. Donna also owned her own ponies for many years and has attempted showing, hunter trials and show jumping and enjoys western riding.
As well as being trained in traditional methods Donna is very keen on the holistic approach to horsemanship and appreciates the horse as a sentient being which led her to discovering the Intelligent Horsemanship in 2007. In 2008 Donna attended training courses with Kelly Marks and the IH team. Donna said “I put these skills into practice when working with horses as it is important to look at the whole horse, undesirable behaviour is a consequence of pain, discomfort or confusion.”
Donna carries out regular massage treatments on Jayne Lancashire’s advanced dressage horses, including Alfons, Inter 1 Supreme Small Tour Champion in 2014 with Spencer Wilton, Olympic Silver Medal Winner in 2016.
