Show Jumping


I grew up in a very horsey family my mum rode to a very high level dressage and did the music for Olympic riders dressage to music tests. She and my dad also raced in Singapore it was there that my dad started playing polo and now he runs Tidworth polo club with my sister Jessica. Before getting into polo Jessica was on the pony and junior British dressage squads. I was always more interested in jumping and always rode as many different horses or ponies I could. My parents moved to Badgworth equestrian centre when I was 10 and we did it up from a crumbling wreck to a thriving competition centre and I loved to help wherever I could. After university I went to work for Kate Tarrant eventing where I produced and broke in young horses for eventing and did there first events on them. I then went to Paul Schockemohles in Germany where I competed and produced young showjumping horses. After that I went to Castle forbes stud in Ireland where I produced show jumpers for Jessica Kurten. I then decided to come home and start up my own yard which I have been building up and building up the quality of the horses. I'm now starting to expand the breeding side of the business as it's something I have a keen interest in and love for as well as competing and teaching. I have always liked teaching and whenever I've had the opportunity I have always watched experienced coaches to pick up as many coaching styles and ways of expressing things as possible. I really care about my clients and genuinely want them to achieve the best they possibly can and really love to see them succeed.

Ethos and about me Showjumping and flatwork / dressage Getting the horse and rider confident and working well together and understanding each other to get a true partnership. I believe in understanding how the horse works and the importance of flat work and getting the horse and rider to use there bodies correctly and to get the rider to communicate to the horse by using there body not just there hands.
