Emma (Colyer) Ross has been around horses for 30 years. She competed as a young girl and teenager in showjumping and dressage. Emma went on to gain her BHS AI teaching qualification and ran a busy London based riding school for many years. During this time she also worked with new horses coming into the yard and would train them up as riding horses. Emma also worked for a 24 hr emergency transporter for vets.
Emma is trained in equine massage and zoopharmacognosy which is the self selection of herbs and esssential oils for animals to self medicate with.
Over the years Emma has taken in many horses with a combination of behavioural and physical problems. They have become the Intuitive Horse herd and they work with Emma to help people in many different ways.
Since 2002 Emma has been exploring the Horse- Human relationship, initially through her own relationship with her horses. Becoming aware the horses were reflecting her behaviour through their own Emma became interested in how the relationship with her horses changed as she adapted her behaviours and emotional states.
In 2008 Emma started trying this way with other people and as a result developed the Intuitive Horse way.
Emma regularly attends courses and workshops to widen her knowledge in areas of human and horse behaviour as she continues to develop her work.
Emma has worked with people in areas such as personal development, anxiety, depression, stress, anorexia, DID, OCD, ADD, ADHD, M.E, special needs, adolescents, looked after children, people with fears of horses, people wanting to further their connection with horses, horse riders, corporates, therapists and other professionals.
