About Emma...

I was fortunate enough to be born into the ‘horsey world’ and have been around horses all my life. I have a passion for Connemara ponies and love the process of backing and producing my own.

If I’m not spending time with my horses, I’m spending time in the outdoors somewhere, exploring with my dog Bonnie.
