Background Information

I have been riding for most of my life, and got my first ever pony on loan when I was 11. My current horse is called ‘Surprise Addition’, but we call him ‘Barty’ or ‘Chubby’ at home. He is an Irish Draught horse, and not your typical competition horse at all but we have had some great results together. These include 6th at the National Dressage Championships, Reserve Champion at the PC Dressage Championships, and 29th at the British Eventing Championships which take place very locally in Minchinhampton!

I am a member of the South West Dressage team, and also represent the Cotswold PC and my University team at national level competitions.
