While growing up in Llanon Ceredigion West Wales, Rosy competed in dog agility, flyball and dog showing with the Young Kennel Club.
Rosys’ interest in horses blossomed as she worked at local Welsh cob stud farms after school and looked after her own ponies.
Taking part in pony club activities, including show jumping and cross country, is where Rosys’ interest in animals became a life-passion.
In 2019 Rosemary qualified as a Veterinary Physiotherapist, having gained her post-graduate diploma in Veterinary Physiotherapy from the University of Nottingham at Level 7, and is currently completing her Master of Science in Veterinary Physiotherapy from the University of Nottingham – School of Veterinary Medicine & Science.
Prior to her degree, Rosemary spent almost 9 years in The Royal Army Veterinary Corps, where she gained many sporting achievements alongside completing operational deployments.
As a class 1 dog trainer she specialised in working with protection and search dogs and was deployed as an arms explosive search handler. She also holds NASDU qualifications in handling GP, Explosive Search and Drug Detection Dogs.
Rosy was thrown from a horse and sustained a life changing spinal injury, so was Medically Discharged in 2018, leading her to follow a life-passion to study veterinary physiotherapy. She can relate to her patients, having gone through the rehabilitation process herself.
Outside of work, Rosy trains and competes in dog agility and Canicross. She also participates in mountain biking when time allows and enjoys hiking. She recently completed a ‘100k Ultra’ event cross the Lake District and finished 16th out of 450 to raise money for the charity ‘Good for Dogs’.
Rosy has a two-year-old Working Collie, who trains in agility and Canicross. He also enjoys swimming and water sports such as paddle boarding and canoeing.
Farm animals include Pedigree Welsh Pigs that have been shown on occasion, pygmy goats, Dorset lambs and ducks reared for their eggs. Her Collie, Marvel, adores accompanying her to complete all the farm chores.
