Throughout my career of over three decades as a senior manager, leadership coach and consultant, I have been searching for a creative way for people to really tap into their potential.
I didn’t grow up in a horsy family, but I have always been obsessed with horses. Since a young age, I would do anything I could think of to be near them. There was something about them that helped me feel understood, calm and happy.
Through Salta Horses, I have finally merged this lifetime connection with horses and my passion for experiential learning, training and leadership coaching.
I completed my training in equine assisted learning through the Eagala model in 2011. Since that time, the Salta Horses team have offered horse assisted learning with a variety of individuals, whānau and businesses across Canterbury.
My Spanish horses are my inspiration. They have shown me that to realise our potential we really do need to ‘take the leap’; the word ‘Salta’ is the Spanish translation for ‘leap’. I am excited to offer this opportunity to others.
