Hard working, Honest and passionate about horses and their welfare.
My first love was horse racing and I was privileged to ride out for Josh Gifford. Later I spent many years on retraining racehorses of which I am still involved. In 2018 we qualified for RoR Goffs UK National Championships at Aintree.
I have just started riding side saddle with a goal to take part in a Concours d'Elegance class next year.
I also have a small herd of alpacas and have shown them nationally and been placed in classes open to European entries. I spin their fibre and enjoy blending with other fibres such as silk, rose and merino fleeces.
