Kate recently completed her Bachelor of Equine Science (Hons) at Charles Sturt University and is now enrolled in a PhD, with a focus on welfare and training, at the University of Sydney.
Having competed to Rolex International level in dressage, jumping and polo, Kate became passionate about finding more ethical and sustainable ways of training the horse. To this end, she studied for 7 months with John and Josh Lyons in Colorado, USA, becoming the first Australian to complete the Lyons Certification Program, and then went on to open a training facility in the United Kingdom, Equine Perfection.
On her return to Australia in 2005, Kate founded Kandoo Equine and now concentrates her efforts in helping owners to train their own horses. Kate also coaches riders and is an Equestrian Australia qualified coach.
The lessons and courses found here on the Kandoo Club Online Training are designed specifically for you to train your horse at home. We can't all afford to have a trainer visit or send our horse out to a trainer (and many, including Kate, wouldn't want to!). By training your horse yourself, you fully understand how the horse learns, you are able to correct problems before they arise and you build a strong and happy relationship with your horse.
