About Me

Stef and Van

Stef completed her Equine Sports Massage Diploma with Mary Bromiley in April 2007, after first completing an equivalent ITEC Diploma in Human Massage. During the same period she was also busy studying for an MSc. in McTimoney Animal Manipulation, from which she graduated in December 2008. Following this, she has added two additional tools to her portfolio – Equine Gaite Analysis and Deep Oscillation(R) Massage.

Looking back a little further, Stef has always had a passion for working with animals and has ridden horses since 11 years of age. In addition she is also involved with the British Horse Society and is an active member of the South Lincolnshire Committee, working as a Volunteer Access & Bridleways Officer.

Stef enjoys the little free time she has with her long suffering “horse widower” husband and also schooling MrG who she says “has far more ability than she has time for” or comments “he is wasted on me!” She also enjoys other outdoor sports of climbing and walking in the Alps and in Scotland and running the odd marathon – well only one actually, the very first Brighton marathon.

My thanks –

I would like to express my special thanks to Heather, Martin and their daughter Evey, Anne Chambers (indoor driving), Paula Leverton and the staff at 4 Winds Equestrian Centre – who have been key to me passing my exams by giving their time and plying me with hot drinks during many practise sessions. I would also like to say thank you to Lyn and Aeysha for posing for this website and to Ben (Lumox Limited) without whom this website would not have been built.
