Clair Star - Horses Healing Hearts

Julie-Anne Beck
Julie has 12 years equine experience, is a certified riding instructor and  has the natural horsemanship to understand and relate to horses on all levels.

Julie works with horses in a way that allows them to express their true personalities through positive reinforcement because she believes that this helps them be a key part of therapy for humans.

Julie is currently studying a High Education Diploma of Counselling Skills.

Anne is a retired nurse and has been passionate about horses since she first lay eyes on one. For over 40 years she has owned, cared, bred, trained, ridden and competed with several horses.

While living in NSW she completed a horse management certificate and recently completed the Scenar for Equines training so that she can provide relief from pain and stiffness for horses.

Anne understands that one never stops learning and she knows that horses can make life better for people and is glad she can contribute to this process.
