My Career Path
My Current Job
When I first moved I had very few clients and the first month was very difficult. I attended jumping competitions held throughout UAE in an attempt to get my name out there and meet potential clients. It was then that I was asked to look at one of the jumping horses on the Qatar International jumping team. After I saw the horse, the rider gave positive reviews about how the horse felt after my work; before I knew it I was the equine therapist for the entire Qatar team.
From then, the Qatar team recommended me to other riders, including members of the Royal Family in Dubai and the UAE jumping teams. I now have my work visa under the name of one of the members of the Royal family and work full-time as an Equine Sports Therapist. I've worked with some of the top horses and riders the sport of show jumping has to offer, not only in the UAE but from around the world. Several of my clients and their horses have competed at the Equestrian Olympic Games and the Nations Cup.
