The RSPCA Victoria engaged Jayne for their state-wide workshop tour to educate new horse owners about horse psychology and equine behaviour in 2010. Jayne represented natural horsemanship at the 2013 Concours de Dressage International event near Melbourne and has been a regular participant in Pet Expos around Victoria, with her arabian gelding, Arriba. In 2012 Jayne was nominated for the Australian Equitarian Award.
Jayne was included in the book, ‘Unconditional Love’ with her story of her rescued brumby and is actively involved in the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of equines in Australia and offers support to several horse welfare organisations such as Project Hope, as well as being a spokesperson for the preservation of our wild brumbies.
These days Jayne works exclusively in Victoria, concentrating on her herd of 10 horses, her horsemanship and the business of running her online shop, while giving classes, clinics and workshops for horse lovers of all ages. She is currently working on first book.
Jayne says, “My work with horses has evolved over the decades, and nowadays I am very passionate about the spirituality of horses and the Gentle Art of Being with Horses. Of course horses are big, strong and powerful animals, so an understanding of them is needed, to remain safe and confident. It’s that mix of understanding, skills and intuition that makes a true horse person, and an enduring love for this amazing creature who deigns to accept us!”
