L Selina Joynson
Founding director of Horse Sense for Life, comes from a large farming family in West Wales. Her father and grandfather were both well-known horsemen who used the horses for working the land. Selina enjoyed the outdoor life and spent most of her time busy on the farm with her pony Penny and sheepdog Juno. When in agricultural college she continued to keep her horses as a hobby. She then got married, had three children and together with her husband, settled on an upland farm, working and schooling horses as well as using them for shepherding on the hills. After a divorce, her life drastically changed and she went to London to study integrative counselling and equine therapy, specifically the Eagala model in 2009. Through some dark and painful times and her life changing career, Selina noticed that she was always uplifted and empowered by her father’s old horse Millie and her little dog Bubbles. Her horse herd grew and she now finds herself again with horses as her companions but with a deeper understanding of the great healing qualities that these animals have to offer humans.
