Helena has been involved with horses for some 50 years.  After starting work in the City of London she bought the first of several horses.  She trained in various disciplines, eventually competing for her club in the final of the South of England Horse Trials championships.  She continued this interest with Riding for the Disabled and is a qualified carriage driver for that charity.  She left the City and took on her first rescue dog, promptly followed by a second, and for 15 years was a volunteer for the local RSPCA branch, her work included the rehoming of animals and a 24 hours a day veterinary assistance line in her home.  On retiring from the RSPCA branch she joined Just Springers Rescue and has since taken on a JSR dog, the running of our web site, and helps out with a variety of jobs as and when required.
