At the age of four I was lucky enough to live on a small holding and my father bought a pony - I think his initial idea was an easy way to avoid cutting the lawn! But I was very taken with the new lawn mower and over the years my parents had to keep upgrading it until we reached Tasha! My first horse, a beautiful chestnut mare and my best friend.
Inevitably after leaving school my first job was with horses. I spent several years in the equine industry including a year in the USA working in Chicago and Kentucky with children and horses, two things I hear you should never do! But I loved it.
After returning from the USA I was lucky enough to gain a position in Leeds as a trainee veterinary nurse and qualified in 1997 and after working in a mixed practice for several years in York, I joined Holmefield in 2004.
I spent several happy years here before I decided to spend more time with my two wonderful children and took a part time lecturing position at Askham Bryan College before resuming my connection with Holmefield Vets as Head Nurse in January 2013. And the rest as they say, is history...
