Racing

Joanna worked in racing for several years before setting up her own business. She worked with point – to – point and National Hunt horses in Ireland before spending twelve months as Head Girl on a flat yard in Australia. She has travelled to many different race meetings with horses and prepared them for sales.

Balanced Horsemanship specialise in the backing and schooling of yearlings, store horses and older horses. Joanna’s patient approach and vast experience means that your horse will receive the top class care and attention to get him off to a great start for a career on the track. We can take on both homebreds and horses direct from the sales for starting under saddle and also take horses for pre- training before they go on to a trainer’s yard. Sales preparation, rehabilitation and re-schooling can also be aranged. Please call Joanna for an informal chat to discuss your horses individual requirements.

Joanna also has experience in re schooling ex racehorses to give them a chance at a second career whether it be a quieter life as a leisure horse or as an RoR horse for competition.

Competition

Joanna regularly competes her own horses in a verity of disciplines, although her passion lies in eventing. She believes that eventing gives the horse such a good all-round education and enjoys the preparation that goes into it. Joanna has also competed clients horses at different disciplines including eventing and dressage. She can take on young horses to be first introduced to the training show environment and older horses to compete. She also produced the winner of the 4 year old Scottish Loose Jumping Championship in 2015 and enjoys teaching a horse to jump with a good technique.

“Joanna took on a very nervous thoroughbred horse we were having great difficulty backing at home.  She got the job done magnificently and when Fergus returned home a few months later he was ready to crack on and begin his successful career as a racehorse.  We are indebted to Joanna for her help in getting him on the right track and I would not hesitate to use her again.” Katie Scott
