FRAN GRIFFITH
Rider Biomechanics Coach (AISRB) & Equine Behaviourist

Welcome to my website! I live and work at Pengraig, in Nebo, Ceredigion, on the west coast of Wales with my two horses, Abee and Yafee and my cat, Jet.

I am lucky to be living my dream - a dream of making a living by working and playing with horses and in my spare time, painting animals.

I have always loved animals, particuarly horses, and been lucky enough to have had horses around all of my life. In my youth I competed with horses on a regular basis and even did some amateur racing. After spending some thirty or so years working in the African Safari business, where I had lots of time to study (and paint) African wildlife in its natural habitat, I ran a riding holiday company for a few years. It was during this time that I realised that there had to be a better way to help people with their own horses and so I started my journey in Natural Horsemanship. After 8 years of studying and teaching Natural Horsemanship, I discovered Colleen Kelly, President of the International Society of Rider Biomechanics. Her work was not only an inspiration to me, it was to provide me with the missing link between Natural Horsemanship and the more traditional and competitive world of equine sports. After spending some time studying with Colleen, I am now qualified as a Level One Rider Biomechanics Coach with the International Society of Rider Biomechanics.
