Sandi is a mother of five, a wife, a business woman, a horse trainer and an International horse presenter. Sandi is Australia’s first Confidence Creator in developing a training system called ‘CREATING CONFIDENCE’.
Sandi’s life has been a mix of highs and lows but was always underpinned by her love of horses. She travels Australia wide to present two-day clinics or camps and appears as a guest presenter at Australia’s major Horse Expos. After having her last two sons with husband David she wanted to return to the saddle but found she had lost her confidence and not being able to find a training system that worked for her she sat down and developed a training system alongside her husband, David. Together, Sandi and David designed this system to ensure that women could feel safe and secure, no matter what their environment. Sandi wanted to accommodate woman who had lost their confidence for one reason or another, whether it be through having children, a bad fall or simply having sometime out of the saddle and this is where CREATING CONFIDENCE was created.
Sandi has now helped thousands of women all over the world regain their confidence to get back in the saddle whilst enjoying a safe and harmonious relationship with their horses. Sandi has also been a horse rider her whole life and has worked on many aspects of the horse industry here in Australia for many years, and been involved with some of the biggest equine events around the world. Sandi’s insightful, compassionate nature makes her a truly unique coach who is now providing a training system that has been sadly lacking for those that have struggles within the equine world. Sandi also developed Cowgirl Dressage it provides the opportunity for women to train her horse in a supportive understanding environment ,it doesn’t matter whether you are a nervous Nellie, a beginner, an experienced rider, or ‘of that certain age’ and getting back into horses. This is for all ladies out there that want to have fun.
