Due to increasing urbanisation and isolation of many horse people, gone are the days when a neighbour could keep "an eye on the horses" allowing a horse owner the opportunity to leave home for days or week.
Having personally experienced this frustration and knowing many friends in the same position, Kay Thornton decided it was time to provide the much needed "connection" to allow horse people to provide a mutually beneficial caring service for each other.
Established in 2016, Horse Nannies is still new but growing and will continuously be adding more services and features to further bring horse people together from all over the world!
Horse Nannies International Founder, Kay Thornton has been involved in the horse industry
for many years. She is an Equestrian Australia Level 2 Coach and is the author of popular Facebook page Funny
As a horse owner and equestrian professional, she was well placed to recognised the dilemma of horse owners unwilling to leave their horses in the care of unspecialised house sitters and decided to reach out to as many horse people as possible to solve this problem.
