The owner of an equine training centre in Highland Perthshire – who spent 20 years leading mountain expeditions across the world – says her enterprise is starting to kick on after she bought the land for her business just days before the first Covid pandemic lockdown.

Humane Dunkeld horse trainer Karen Inkster started up Equine Unlimited to help owners train horses without the need for physical disciplining techniques.Karen uses positive reinforcement methods, such as clicker training and promotes barefoot and bitless riding.Equine Unlimited also teaches courses utilising verbal cues, riding without the use of whips or spurs and walking the mammals with no bridle or saddle.

After 20 years of experience as a globe-trotting expedition leader – in places such as Madagascar, Peru and the Sahara Desert – Karen returned to her Highland Perthshire birthplace.
