I was fortunate to be brought up around horses. My mum took me with her to exercise hunters when I was 2 and I started riding shortly after. I have 35 years experience working with horses, including cross country, pony club, dressage, caring for and exercising all manner of client's horses.

I have fostered for the RSPCA and backed my own youngster, who is very much part of the family. I am now concentrating on training to be a coach and bringing my new horse on for dressage competing.
