Samantha Bowden – Holistic Healing Practitioner
For the past 16 years I have worked within the leisure industry, acquiring a wide range of skills and knowledge up to management level. However, horses and dogs have always been a large part of my life.
Having ridden since a small child, it was a natural progression for me to work with horses after leaving school. From the age of 18, I worked in a variety of yards within the equine industry. This included competition yards, livery yards, riding stables and training centres. I was fortunate enough to train at the renowned Huntley School of Equitation under Carole Broad FBHS (Fellow of the British Horse Society) where I gained my own BHSAI instructors qualification. From there I went on to run my own BHS Approved Riding Centre, teaching pupils of all ages and also teaching freelance.
I originally discovered energy healing therapy through my work with horses. I soon discovered that these techniques were beneficial to people and dogs too. A growing interest in the subject led to further studying, leading to qualifications in Equine Energy Therapy and as a Holistic Healing Practitioner. I have now been healing since 2011. Along with nearly 30 years experience in the equestrian industry, I hope to be able to offer horse owners a balanced approach.
I live in Barnstaple, North Devon with my family, three horses and a german shepherd.
