I started riding at the age of 4 and I have had the bug ever since. I helped at my local riding school, was a member of The Pony Club and had a loan pony before having my own horse Billy at the age of 17. Billy was a bay thoroughbred, sadly before I purchased Billy he had been left in a field for several years and neglected so it took some time and perseverance to build a relationship with him. He was a special horse as he was my first horse but also taught me so much. When i first had him he did not want to come in from the field. I would catch him, start my way up the track and he would take off back to the field and round and round we went! He wasnt keen on being handled to start with but after hours of patience and TLC he improved. We went on to enjoy lots of activities and he came to Hartpury with me.
I have four horses a dutch warmblood named Cassinova, he really does live up to his name and is known for jumping out of places he shouldn't. We compete at dressage and enjoy hacking. Cassinova is also a very special horse to me, as a 3 year old he went to be graded at the stallion show in Den Bosch. At the final rounds he didn't make it which I am very pleased about otherwise I wouldn't have got him now. He is a very cheeky character and can usually be found causing mischief of some sorts.
Jimmy our largest horse at 18 hands is a Gelderlander , and in my opinion this breed is amazing he is now 21 and king of the herd. We also have Benji our adopted horse who is now retired from showjumping and is enjoying his days getting pampered, eating grass and getting plenty of treats. Our newest horse is Eduardo who I hope to event and compete at BD.
I also have a rescue cat named Oscar who is always hanging out with me when I am working in the office, he was at the stables for a while but we soon realised he preferred to be at home on the sofa.
I also work in the animal pharmaceutical industry which I thoroughly enjoy.
