Hello and welcome
"Horses are my passion , helping others is my purpose in life"
Helping you and your horse to achieve your hopes,goals and dreams is my no.1 priority.
I qualified as a Qualified Saddle Fitter in 2011 with the Society of Master Saddlers and have worked along side my sister who has 20 years experience saddle fitting.
I previously worked closely with Barnsby Saddlery and learnt a wealth of knowledge about saddle manufacturing, panel types,saddle trees and made to measure saddles.
I spent some time with Dale Myler ( MYLER BITS) which was truly fascinating and have attended various lorinery courses.
I also attended the Back Biomechanics and Saddle Fitting Weekend Course with Russel Guire. Centaur Biomechanics, is a company which specialises in horse and rider performance analysis. Serving the equine industry in providing the latest software and techniques available to help improve performance and maintain soundness of both the horse and rider.
I frequently attend Society of Master Saddlers refresher saddle fitting days and any horse and rider related training days , i am always on the look out to improve my knowledge and personal development.
I was also a Beta Equestrian Trade Association council and completed most of the BETA training days.
I feel that its not just about how your saddle fits, its more about the whole holistic overall picture and includes the style and fitting of your girth,pads,saddle cloths,bits,bridle and breastplates etc.
I am a Society of Master Saddlers " Qualified Saddle Fitter" 47 and I have ridden all of my life and competed in various different disciplines. Im married to Pete and our son Mitch is a flat jockey and our daughter Charli is also a keen horse rider.
In 1993 i opened an equestrian retail shop "Jennys Tack Shop" with just a small budget and turned it into a million pound turnover company.I had a vision that i wanted to grow the business to be one of the largest Equestrian Superstores in the southwest.
I achieved this with the help of my family,good customer service, attending trade shows, hard work and pure passion for the industry. I then went onto sell the shop in 2013 and went on to set up my current Saddle fitting business Jts Saddlery Ltd.
In 2014 I cycled with some friends from London to Paris to raise money for St Peters Hospice.In June 2014 i was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, as you can imagine this was not good news.
But now after surgery, chemo, radio and breast reconstruction i am fit , healthy and well.
Whilst going through my journey, i came across "The Coaching Academy" and enrolled in two Foundation Degree qualifications Personal and performance ( life coaching ) and business Coaching. The academy is owned by Bev James who lives in Bristol and used to ride and come into my shop years ago is the Manager to The Body Coach and Dam Kelly Holmes to mention but a few.
I travelled to San Diego in March 2017 to attend a 4 day seminar with Brendon Burchard who is one of my idols and has studied people who are high performers for over 20 years... it was a truly fascinating experience and has helped me on my personal development journey.
I also own a Racehorse called "Bounty Pursuit " he is trained at Michael Blake Stables in Trowbridge .
We run " Racing for a Cause" a Horse racing Charity Membership" its just £50 per month to join and we raise money for for our two chosen charities St Peters Hospice and Dorothy House Hospice.
Bringing my wealth of industry knowledge,saddle fitting skills and coaching , i believe i can be part of your desired outcome for you and your horse.
Building rapport with you and your horse,building our relationship with active listening and thoughtful questioning to understand your needs .
I am so so passionate about horses and helping my clients reach their riding goals i could actually burst.
