Extended Learning

The response we have had from attendees about Sharon May-Davis’ workshops has been fantastic and it is great that horse owners are wanting to broaden their equine education for their favourite equine friends.

Sharon is a world renowned Equine Therapist and Scientist. Her experience with performance horses has spanned nearly 40 years and boasts clients representing Australia in four equestrian disciplines. Her practical applications have been supported by an array of academic qualifications that have been obtained at Tertiary and University levels in Australia and the United States of America. These include a Bachelor of Applied Science (Equine), a Research and Coursework Masters Degree (4 Equine Thesi) and numerous Equine Therapeutic qualifications.

In addition, Sharon has taught equine subjects at various educational facilities for over 15 years and spoken at many seminars, expositions and workshops in Australia and overseas. One particular highlight occurred in 2005, when she spoke at the World Expo in Achii Japan on three equine subjects.

Over the years, Sharon has earned two descriptive nicknames – “The Bone Lady” and “Equine CSI”. This was due to her research into equine anatomy and skeletal articulations, and as a direct consequence, Midway College Kentucky awarded her a “Certificate of Honor” in recognition. This was soon followed by her appointment as the Equine Anatomical Consultant for Edu-Corp Inc., America.

Sharon’s devotion to performance horses and her comprehensive understanding of associated anatomy and athletic ability has seen her develop specific techniques relevant to various equine disciplines and rehabilitation. As a direct consequence, horses have improved their athletic capabilities and the record books verify their accomplishments. However, none of this could have been achieved without the knowledge of what lay beneath the outer layer of hair and skin. With this in mind, Sharon is always striving to understand the variations that lie within and thus, is looking forward to presenting this clinic so that we all may gain from the experience.
