A little bit more about me, I started riding at the age of two winning my first class at 3 years old. Started showjumping on my pony Fred aged 5 who took me to all the big shows winning at Hickstead holding the record in Jersey Horse of the Year show for many years, moved onto a bigger pony when I was 11 and he took me to the top level winning a lot of showjumping competition in the Uk and abroad. The highlight of my showjumping career was riding for my country in the showjumping Europeans finishing 6.  I changed from showjumping to racing horses, riding 50 winners on the track and point-to-points, having big wins at Punchestown, Gorwan Park, Down Royal riding at the Cheltenham Festival, winning the leading lady riding.  My career came to an end when I broke my back in a fall racing in the north of Ireland.  But I still have a huge passion for horses and my children are hugely successful riders and compete at a high level, even Amber has her first win aged 4, we love going off to competitions at the weekends, and have met some fantastic friends through horse riding.
