I come from a completely unhorsey background and learnt to ride in riding schools where in exchange for a days work I would be able to sit on one of the horses.
Horses have always been an insatiable love for me and as a result I decided to leave college to work with them full time.
My first full time job was oddly enough with fellow brand ambassador and friend Andrew Gould who helped me find my very first horse Sven who was bought for me as a three year old.
Somehow, despite having no idea what I was really doing and being thrown off at least twice a week for a few months, I managed to take him up through the levels and competed to Grand Prix.
After working for Andrew I then moved to Germany where I was very lucky to train and work for German team trainer and multiple medal winner Monica Theoderescu and her father Jorge. The hours were long but what I learnt was priceless.
Since returning to England I have trained and taught numerous horses, riders and combinations to help achieve their ambitions and goals as well as competed in countless competitions myself. Most recently my young stallion won the international 5yr old championship in 2017 and then the international 6yr old tittle 2018. I’m hoping our future together will fulfill the dreams I had when I first started of representing GB.
Being part of the KM Elite family is a great honour and something, when I first starting working with horses, never dreamed would happen.
