PA to General Manager (Temporary)

I am passionate about animals and they have always been a huge part of my life, and I was lucky enough to grow up with a selection of ponies, cats and dogs. This passion led me to work with horses in various establishments and I have always enjoyed the connection and trust from horses and their ability to keep you in the present moment.  It is very rewarding working within an animal charity, and at Oak Tree there is a real family atmosphere. It is clear that everyone here is passionate about the welfare of animals, and this make the environment fantastic to work in.

I currently have two horses, they are my world and make me smile every day, I am lucky to keep them in a beautiful location with fantastic hacking in the forestry to enjoy.  I am planning on backing my young horse and have recently started her training on the ground in preparation and I cannot wait to get out and about with her. At home, my cat (Gypsy) makes me smile as she has certainly come out of her shell since she arrived at my stables as a stray, and decided that she liked me enough to stay. It is true what they say, cats chose their owners!
