I have been a coach for 25 years both here in Australia and the UK.

What were the main reasons you became a coach?
I have always worked with horses and have a real passion for them and  knowing how therapeutic they are led me to become involved with RDA.

What is the best thing about being a coach?

It is such a rewarding experience. Watching the children react to the horses in a positive way and seeing the smiles on their faces makes it so worthwhile. The intuition of the horses always amazes me and working alongside such fantastic volunteers is great too.
