Sheila Lee Thompson is based at Bitless Equestrian Centre near Lampeter in west Wales & covers the surrounding area
Born on a small mixed farm when horses were still working on the farm (no tractors!) I have maintained my close links with animals & nature throughout my life and now seem to have come full circle, living on a smallholding in beautiful west Wales where in 2007 I established and continue to run (ably assisted by my family and Rosemary Carrington-Rogers, BHSAI) an unique equestrian centre pioneering a kinder way with horses. Bitless Equestrian Centre is, to our knowledge, the first Equestrian Centre in Wales, & probably the whole of the UK, where horsemanship is truly natural, caring & compassionate - with horses kept as naturally as possible; uncompromised by the wholly unnatural concepts of stables, rugs, processed cereal feeds, bits & metal shoes and kept healthy without use of harsh chemical wormers or antibiotics.

Instead they are turned out 24/7/365 with access to shelter, forage, minerals, beneficial herbs etc and handled / trained with respect & kindness. Bitless Equestrian Centre has established itself as a base for complementary therapies (for animals & humans) where the following therapies are offered Reiki, Homeopathy, Rolfing, Myofascial Release for horses, Body Mirror System of Healing, Bach Flower remedies, Equine Natural Medicine & most recently, Applied Zoopharmacognosy. The horses live happily alongside various poultry (including peacocks), goats & a small herd of alpacas as well as the resident dogs & cats - all have benefited from the new-found knowledge of AZ.

When I discovered Applied Zoopharmacognosy it seemed to encompass & bring together my greatest interests (animals, nature, plants, healing) and the background of Equine Natural Medicine, so ably taught by Julian Midder, has given me a great foundation for this new learning.

Caroline Ingraham has pioneered the science of Applied Zoopharmacognosy throughout the world and I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to learn this amazing self-selection healing for animals under her expert tutelage.

Passionate about spreading the word, I am happy to give talks at Bitless Equestrian Centre or at a venue of your choice.  I recently gave a talk to the South West Wales Goat Club - several of the members commented that it was one of the most interesting meetings they had attended in a long time.
