Early beginnings

I started riding at a very early age of four after being sat on a horse belonging to my cousin and have been riding nearly every day since the age of fourteen. I started competing at local shows on friend’s ponies, always picking up handfuls of rosettes. By the age of seventeen, I was working with show jumping horses and progressed to working with event horses by the age of eighteen, which is when I bought my first horse and really got a taste for competitions. My greatest achievement that year was finishing fourth on my own horse at a two day junior event down in Somerset.
