I am delighted that our horse Kez has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Equestrian Business Awards in the Social Influencer of the Year Section. 

Because of Kez we started the original Non Ridden Equine Facebook Group. Little did we know tens of thousands would join the group; or what a passionate, dedicated and inspirational group of people they are. Kez’s Group – The Non Ridden Equine Facebook Group now has over 32,000 members and it continues to grow. Kez has his own Facebook page – Kez the Non Ridden Cob.  The Non Ridden Equine Facebook Group provides space for people to connect and share. Kez – The Non Ridden Cob Facebook page is where we share our own stories and messages. The Non Ridden Equine Facebook Group and Kez - The Non Ridden Cob page are linked.  

I also provide via my website FREE non ridden resources in Kez’s Club. For all as everything non ridden is of benefit for all equines be they ridden or non ridden. We are not anti riding. 

My husband Steve and I purchased Kez in November 2015 to share as a riding horse. Sadly this was not to be. We discovered Kez found riding difficult, so Kathryn Welland from Oaklands Physiotherapy came to check Kez over. It was clear something wasn’t right so our local vet Lauren from 608 Vets came out. Lots of tests and head scratching and no answers it was decided to send Kez to Newmarket Equine Hospital. There he spent a week with the specialist and all the latest technology. It was confirmed Kez has conditions that mean riding is not for him. Kez came home. And our story non ridden story began.  We are not anti riding. However non ridden equines and people who choose not to ride face challenges and pressures. And Kez certainly showed Steve and I we needed to step up and do more.      

A Bit of Background History. Kez is an Irish cob. We know little about his past. Just that he came into England in 2015 to a local dealer. That is where we found Kez. There was something about him that pulled so much. I cannot tell you what, but there he was, and I only had eyes for him. They say horses come into our lives for a reason….so I never question that anymore. My previous horses have all taught me profound life changing life lessons. Those lessons I have shared within the horsemanship I teach and the articles I had published. I still work with people and their horses. As often people are seeking a better understanding of their horse and are looking for a deep and profound connection. Some are looking to understand their horse's communication. Others are on profound healing journeys. What I offer is a life time of horsemanship experience plus if required Reiki healing.   

Kez has his own Facebook page. Here we share his stories, poems and adventures. We also promote the diversity of non ridden activities on his Facebook page with links for people to click on to explore the topic in more details.  

I have created a non ridden resource bank and called it Kez's Club. Lots of FREE resources to inspire, delight and educate. MY GIFT TO YOU WITH LOVE.  

The Non Ridden Equine Facebook Group

Kez is the reason Steve and I started the original Non Ridden Equine Facebook group. Little did we know when we started the group tens of thousands would join. We have made friends with people from all over the world. It is a safe haven in an equine world that has a strong bias towards the riding agenda. It is not an anti riding group. We welcome everyone. As everything non ridden is of huge benefit to all equines and people.
