SECRETARY - Andrew Head.
 
PROJECT MANAGER
The project is managed on a regular basis by Shivam O’Brien who has over twenty years experience as course director and site manager in this valley through the work of Spirit Horse Foundation. It is hoped that he will remain in this role at least during the initial years  and that any successors will benefit from his enormous experience.
