Dr Ben’s Story

Ben is a graduate from the University of Queensland Veterinary School. Ben’s love of horses originates from both sides of his family. On the “Dam” side, his mother grew up on a remote cattle station “Mount House” in the Kimberly district of Western Australia in the 1950’s and 60’s.

In the 90’s Ben studied horsemanship at clinics under the guidance of famous horseman Pat Parelli. In 1997 this inspired Ben to learn more about horse handling and psychology and studied extensively with Pat Parelli in Colorado USA.
