Following her partner taking his own life, a young woman, a shepherd, horsewoman and student, decided to tackle the problem of rural isolation head-on. She has toured the country providing “rural health wellbeing education’, speaking in packed country halls to young farm workers about her ‘resilience’ training methods. In the process she has set up charity to help deal with that important rural health issue. At every event local shepherds are also encouraged to bring along their dogs to share a bark-up with her own dog Jess, inherited from her late partner.
