Mandy and Steve have two grown children Ben and Chantel, which has now extended to daughter and son in law and two beautiful Grandbabies.
A student of the horse and having tried all different facets within the horse world from breeding, showing, horse breaking and training, she now believes she has found her niche in teaching. After completing her Certificate III in Sport and Recreation (Equine), Mandy began coaching, evolving into running her popular Ladies Confidence Building Workshops.
A trip to the USA in 2016 to find out more about Cowboy Dressage and study with Eitan Beth Halachmy ignited her passion for spreading news of the benefits of Cowboy Dressage for horses and riders. A couple more trips to the USA and Mandy gained her Cowboy Dressage Level 2 Recommended Judge and Level 2 Clinician Qualifications. Mandy and Steve love their Cowboy Dressage family and have a fond spot for the USA in their hearts, hoping to be regular visitors.
Today Mandy is full time travelling and teaching Horsemanship, Liberty and Cowboy Dressage Clinics with Steve joining her when he can to do the vital leg work, set up, photography, and looking after the clinic participants. Although Steve is not a horseman, he will tell you, he is Mandy's biggest supporter, and together they are Mandy Probyn Equine Connection.
Steve is in the process of setting up an Equine Teaching Ranch where they can accommodate small groups of people for more one on one clinics.
Having been involved in Youth Groups, Children, and Community work Steve and Mandy have plans to open their Ranch for Life Skills, Leaders and Teams training using horses as part of the curriculum.
So, stay tuned as "the best is yet to come".
