when I was about 5 years old I did the typical riding school lessons
and then working at my local
riding schools, where they focused mainly on Eventing. I competed in
this discipline for a few years on "Rex" a
Thoroughbred straight off the track, I trained him up the levels but
sold him after I discovered Dressage, which is where my true passion
lies. I purchased a beautiful warmblood mare named 'Let's Charm' to
persue my passion, who has since produced for me two beautiful purpose
bred Dressage Diva's named 'Tequila Rose' and 'Alizé Black'.
riding club has given me a fantastic opportunity to expose Tequila
(pictured) to the big wide world in a fun relaxed environment, our first
day at the riding club was only about her 10th ride into the breaking
process! I plan on exposing Alizé the same way once I begin to break
her in, it is such a brilliant way to introduce them to the outside
world before throwing them in the deep end at a competition!
I started riding at the age of 12 until I went to uni after which I had a 13 year break. I worked and lived on a riding school for a few years and now live on a large cattle property near Stroud. I've had my boy Zephyr, a 6 year old Friesian Warmblood, since he was a yearling and we are learning lots together. I love dressage and am really keen to do working equitation. Hubby and I also do some medieval and napoleonic reenactment.
I am currently completing a MSc(Equine Science) and work as an Equine Nutrition Consultant for performance and pleasure horses. I don't nearly ride my WB, Uri, enough but when I do I focus on dressage. I would like to learn more about Working Equitation.
