Tara was born and raised in Christchurch, New Zealand before moving to Perth in 2011 with her husband, Alistair and 2 children, Caleb and Logan. Tara has always loved and been surrounded by animals but has always had a particular passion for horses.
She rode horses throughout her teens before having break and picking it up again in 2012. Having wanted to work with horses in some capacity, she pursued a course in bit fitting where she is working towards her accreditation with BitBank Australia. She started in her current role at Dental Vet in October 2020 and is now aspiring to undertake her Cert IV qualification in Veterinary Nursing.
Her menagerie consists of two horses – Fire, a 23yo Arab (retiree) and Ella, a 5yo Warmblood X GRP with plans to event in the near future. Lastly Felix, an 8yo longhair domestic cat who seems to have managed to successfully train her husband better than she has! When not working, she likes to spend time with friends and family, watching sport (cricket, her other passion!), riding and competing on her mare.
