Our Story

Rosemary Wyndham-Jones

Rosemary Wyndham-Jones

A life-long horsewoman, Rosemary Wyndham-Jones is a natural horsefriendship professional and a certified EAGALA Facilitator (ES). She studies the dynamics and relational development of the horse/human connection.

She co-founded The Equine Pathfinders Foundation, a charitable organisation established to support the growth of Equine Assisted Growth and Learning throughout New Zealand.

Rosemary’s Centre of Horse Inspired Learning includes working with corporates, communities, individuals, couples, at-risk women, children and adolescents, young offenders and troubled youth. 

Horses are excellent teachers and Rosemary utilises the concepts and psychology of herd behaviour to provide powerful life-learning experiences from which clients draw metaphors to life outside the arena and thus develop a sense of self and a feeling of well-being.

Rosemary is an advocate of health and wellness. She has a black belt in karate, practices yoga, and plays with her horses to maintain her own sense of balance. She loves her life of being with horses and creating a space for others to gain benefit from their wisdom.

Rosemary is the founder and director of Dune Lakes Lodge Ltd an Equine Retreat Centre on the North West Coast of Auckland, New Zealand.


Rosemary is joined by Alistair Wait, a Neuro Lingistic Programming (NLP) Master Trainer to facilitate the transformational learning available at Dune Lakes Lodge

The Philosophy of Dune Lakes Lodge informs everything they choose to include and not include in their programs. It is a philosophy that genuinely respects all that share the earth, and the earth itself.


Only an hours drive from the centre of Auckland, the beautiful 100 year old villa sits in 37 acres of rolling grassland, adjacent to Lake Kereta and 3kms from miles and miles of sandy beach. The location of Dune Lakes Lodge is part of it's magic. Situated on ancient sand dunes and surrounded by ecologically significant lakes and oceans there is a very special sense of place.
