This is an alternative way of working blending 'body' knowledge and biomechanical solutions and
is the result of decades of training and coaching in figure skating, dance, Yoga and equestrian sports. Training that has included learning, coaching and mentorship with leaders in movement discplines.
Over thirty years of movement training has inspired her ways of working with horse and rider combinations; Mme Zora Semberova (Czch / dance), Carol Kreuzinger & Annie Schelter (Can / figure skating), Simi Roche (USA / Ashtanga Yoga), Dr Andrew & Manuela McLean (Aus / Equine Learning Theory), Mary Wanless (UK / founder rider biomechanics movement) have informed a deep understanding of movement patterns, balance and alignment through theory and practical application.
With a unique training tool box, Mardi has a lifelong involvement in the Arts and sport as a creative, competitor, manager and coach, has competed to an elite level as a Figure Skater, and holds NCAS qualifications as both an Equestrian and Figure Skating Coach. A graduate of the University of Adelaide in Anthropology and Art History, she has a keen interest in the intersection between Art and Sport.
In her ridden endeavours she has had success as a competitor in unofficial eventing on her TB gelding Keeping Up Appearances, official dressage with her Welsh Cob stallion Cataraqui Selyf (EA SA Preliminary Pony Dressage Champion 2013, 2nd EA SA Elementary Pony Dressage SA State Dressage Championships 2015) and in the show ring having been awarded Supreme Ridden Welsh Exhibit and Welsh Pony & Cob Society Australia Welsh Medal Winner at the SA Welsh Championships on more than one occasion.
Enhanced by the learning from the founder of the rider biomechanics movement, Mary Wanless, she finds innovative ways to get riders 'into their bodies' and works in a sound evidence based, ethical way.
