Pippa qualified SANEF Prelim Instructor and was freelance instructing while studying the Agricultural Management Degree at Natal University.
Following graduation she traveled overseas and was introduced to Natural Horsemanship. Fascinated with the psychological approach which leads to understanding horses on a deeper level Pippa enrolled as a working student at the Parelli Centre in East Sussex, England for a year.
Since returning to South Africa eleven years ago she has been consulting in the horse industry throughout South Africa as well as in Namibia. Pippa has also been instructing in disabled riding for 8 years and more recently in Para Dressage for 2 years.
Using connection, communication and equine psychology Pippa specialises in starting horses and ponies, in training and re-training riding horses, in sorting out “problem horses” and in guiding people on their own horsemanship journey.
