Helen’s love of horses began at the tender age of ten when Megan, a Highland pony, entered her life. With the local Pony Club nearby to fuel her enthusiasm Helen’s passion for all things equine grew, and she has tried her hand at almost every discipline at one time or another, including vaulting. Helen’s first (and only!) vaulting competition resulted in her coming away with the title of English Pre-Novice Individual Champion. With each passing year Helen does more and more vaulting in the shows, and has recently started Roman riding as well – much to her delight! Helen has travelled extensively, but has always been drawn to four legged creatures. She instantly befriended elephants in Nepal and camels in India, before being drawn back to horses in Australia. Helen was discovered by Rosie through Hannah Weston of Connection Training, where she previously worked as an Equine Clicker Training, teaching both people and horses. In 2017 Helen completed her yoga teacher training, and now runs classes and retreats as Yoga Bella, both throughout North Yorkshire and Spain. Helen has also spent five summers out in Mississippi as a leader at a children’s camp, which along with being one of six siblings, has given her the voice necessary for being Galloping Acrobatics’s main commentator!
