Marquis - 'Marquis Van Friesianwood'


Birthday:  16/09/2004   –   Deceased: 03/06/2015
Breed:  Friesian 
Sex:  Gelding (Male)
Colour:  Black

Consciously You is dedicated to Marquis.

When I bought him in 2007 there were only around 150 Friesian horses in Australia and it was a miracle to me that he came to me. I was 15 and he was 2 years old so we grew up together physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. He was trained under saddle at age 5 in 2009 and so began my journey in training as well. Seeing the connection between the two of us led me to discover Equine Therapy and I became my own first client, experiencing the benefits of experiential learning through horses.

He was an integral part of my life for the time he was with me, teaching me more than I could ever have imagined about horses and also linking me to so many wonderful people and horses. He was the link between all of the people in my support team and also inadvertently brought all the current horses who are part of the team together. Born a leader, he had a magnificent presence and was wise and caring, becoming affectionately known as Buddha.  

Missed dearly, he will always be an integral part of the work done here at Consciously You.

Avalon - 'Mahaan Midas Touch'

Birthday:  23/09/2009 
Breed:  Anglo-Arabian  
Sex:  Gelding (Male)
Colour:  Chestnut

Born with fire in his heart.

Avalon is a very spirited and intelligent young horse who loves to play and be out and about. He is very curious and likes to be busy. He has been with me from day one, being the last foal born on our property. He was born with fire in his heart and I always commented he had more spirit than his body could handle! We have been on quite the journey together already. Despite being born into a safe home, he was incredibly fearful of everything and would not allow anyone to touch him. Being so fearful and highly strung he would always be seen racing around his paddock in a panic and was always hurting himself because of it. 

I began training him at 18 months old and although those who saw him told me he would be better off dead for both our sakes, I persevered, seeing the potential he had. Slowly he became calmer and panicked less and less. Suddenly his true personality came out and he blossomed into a willing, adventurous, even-tempered young horse who had a lot to teach. I was not sure how he would go with my work but he has embraced it whole-heartedly and chooses his clients carefully. He likes to teach people to embrace their power and work with it, as well as be grounded and present. He has become the star of the team and a crowd favourite, my diamond in the rough.

Queenie - 'Queen Midas'


Birthday:  02/09/1995  – Deceased
Breed:  Thoroughbred  
Sex:  Mare (Female)
Colour:  Bay

A very smart girl, a real sweetie.

Queenie was an ex-racehorse turned broodmare who was purchased in 2010 when my mother was looking for a riding horse. She was in foal to Avalon at the time. She was in quite a bad state when we bought her but luckily after feeding her up, and returning her to good health she gave birth to a beautiful healthy foal. She was a bit accident prone and had a few bumps and cuts from previous injuries but was a lovely natured girl who enjoyed cuddles and quiet time. 

Always missed.

A beautiful horse to work with, a true healer.

Chello was purchased from a Quarter horse sale in 2001 at the age of 6 months by my partner’s mother. She later became my partner’s (Benson) riding horse at the age of 2 and was his horse from then on. Benson put her in foal at the age of 11 and after moving to Adelaide had her and her foal trucked from WA to us in June 2014. After arriving, it became obvious that she was unwell and having her treated revealed she was suffering extreme muscular and skeletal issues. After 12 months of intensive treatment and recovery time she fully recovered. 

She joined the team as one of our therapy horses in 2015. We are happy to say she found some great companionship within our herd and became comfortable and content. Chello went through a lot which gave her great understanding and healing capacity when working with others. She was very intelligent, sensitive and quick thinking. A fascinating and beautiful horse to work with, a true healer.

Always missed.
