YOUR NAME: Gillian Moore
TELL US WHY YOU'RE SUPPORTING THIS FINALIST...: I’m a social worker and Simone has worked with some young people known to me. Through Equine Assisted Learning, and Simone’s patience and passion for supporting people, I have seen young people develop a sense of worth and make positive con
nections with the world around them. On a more personal level my own daughter has a life limiting illness. She started Equine Assisted Learning to help with her anxiety and confidence. Simone took time to get to know her and used the ponies to help build her confidence around new situations to a level I never though possible. My daughter is now a confident, but most importantly, happy child who now looks forward to each day. Tullynewbank, Simone, Charles and of course Casper the pony, are really changing lives through horses.

TELL US WHY YOU'RE SUPPORTING THIS FINALIST...: Simone is so warm, caring and passionate about changing lives through horses. Her calm nature, her ability to put you at ease from the get-go is amazing. As a person who struggles with anxiety and lack of confidence, I found the workshop very helpful, the intuition of the horses when being around them was astounding. Knowing that these horses see you at your most vulnerable, offer no judgement and can sense what you are feeling is a truly special experience. I can't recommend Tullynewbank Stables highly enough.
