On a horse since the age of two, and involved with breeding, schooling, trail riding and training Zambia’s National Polocrosse team. My dream of leading horse-lovers on multi-day rides in a remote wilderness has come true. I have worked in conservation, eco-tourism and with horses all my life, which has included training horses to work in wildlife areas for anti-poaching patrol work.
