Volunteer and Resident Paramedic

New to NRC last summer, Claire keeps her horse Yogi on working livery and volunteers to help out with treks and pony club as well as being a gofer around the stables when she is not at work. She has also quickly established herself as chief tea maker!

Claire has been involved with horses since childhood and spent many a happy summer working at a treking centre in Wales whilst studying for a BSc Geology degree.  Always looking for new challenges Claire just passed her BHS Equine Tourism Assitant Ride Leader qualification in early September.

Claire's main interest lies in completing multi-day (unsupported) treks on horseback and she is looking forward to exploring the Monadhliaths and Cairngorms as soon as her and Yogi are fit enough.  In connection with NRC, she is hoping to find others to explore with her (oh... and perhaps borrow a pack pony!).

When not at NRC, Claire works as an Ambulance Technician and has a keen interest in outdoor sports.  She has a variety of coaching qualifications in paddlesports and hill sports and enjoys running with her dog, playing the mandolin and socialising with friends over a pint of real ale!
