We asked Katie…
What age did you start riding?
“I started riding between 4 and 5 years old, I knew horses would play a major part in my life as my dad was and still is very much into horse racing, my love for this beautiful creature just grew from there.”
Which disciplines do you take part in?
“I love Showjumping with Jazz, she is a crazy little mare at times but has so much energy and bravery that in the ring, she always gives a great round.
Domino is more suited to Dressage, it’s a quieter activity. Anything too adrenaline filled will have him more often than not trying to throw you off outside of the ring - he’s such a naughty pony!
We also like attending sponsored rides, it feels great doing something you love for charity but it’s also a great social event.
Hector, being retired, enjoys a steadier pace of life and does what all horses do best - eat grass!”
Favourite part of your job?
“The best thing about working for Equesure is being a part of such a wonderful, like-minded team - and of course being able to talk about horses all day!”
