What age did you start riding?
I started riding when I was 4, I then went on to work on yards from the age of 12 years old and I recieved free lessons in return of my work. I baught my first horse Reuben who I adored at the age of 17 years old. He taught me a lot of things especially how to sit to a buck after many years of challenging me. This never put me off and I have always had horses ever since!

The opportunities to attend shows with the team is a lot of fun, meeting like-minded people and it’s great to continue gaining experience!
