I was introduced to the equestrian world through my uncle in the Caribbean at the age of 14, after my parents left the UK (Leicester) to relocate. My uncle had a race yard and at the age of the 17 I became a professional racehorse trainer. This led me to oversee and manage all duties at my Uncles Race yard “Ocean Pacific Stables”. That is where I was introduced to the equine world. I now am firmly established in the ‘Equestrian World’ (All things Horse related) locally, nationally and internationally. I am a qualified Racehorse Trainer and Breeder. I was formerly employed by the largest Arabian Stub Farm in the UK at the time “Umm Qarn Farms”, which belonged to the ruler of Qatar at the time HRH Sheikh Abdullah Bin Khalifa Al Thani.
Having turned down opportunities to go out to Qatar to work for ‘HRH’; a new horizon emerged. I have since used EAL (Equine Assisted Learning) to have a positive impact on the lives of 100’s of disadvantaged young people and adults within Leicestershire. Providing services and learning experiences for clients such as the Leicester City Council and Connexions. It is a fact that animals provide a very therapeutic teaching aid. Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) can be used for personal development and to aid in life skills for children / young adults. Providing my expertise in (EAL) through programmes designed for those very things is a true passion of mine.
I am now ready to take the next step in his journey of spreading the message of ‘EAL’ and ‘Personal Development’ in the UK, across Europe and finally around the world through his ‘Projects, Services and Books’. My background is directly associated with Racing, Youngstock and Stud Management. Thoroughbred and Arabian breeds in particular. I have assisted in the production of thousands of racehorses. My recent work involved assisting with races at Ascot and Newmarket.
If you read my book ‘From The Hood 2 Horses’ you will further understand why I have started several equine based projects.
