Sports - I am a qualified Physical Education teacher (as well as Math/Science)and ran the sports programs in the schools in which I taught. For six years I was the head coach for a regional gymnastics squad in Australia.
I have attended coaching clinics with 6 time Miss Olympia Corey Everson and Australian Bev Francis ( 6 Time World Powerlifting Champion who has broken more than 40 World Powerlifting records).
Equestrian - More than 30 years competing in Dressage and 3 Day events at regional and National level in Australia and at regional events in the US.
Following hip replacement surgery five years back I was immediately back on my two horses training and competing.
I work out with weights and circuit training in the gym 5 days per week for a minimum of 45 mins per day. This is something I have done now for more than 25 years.
In my "spare time" I manage two companies (now three), take care of lawns and gardens on a 50 acre property and care for my two competition horses. This involves careful nutrition and a dedicated exercise program to maintain competition level fitness for both rider and horse. I am also very focused on the training and performance aspects of horses and have always been highly interested in the relationship between horse nutrition and performance.
