Unfortunately I am not qualified in anything horse related as I decided to take a different route when I left school. However I am a qualified hairdresser and beautician which comes in handy for trimming, plaiting and clipping the horses! I am educated to degree level.

*Being brought up in a family whose lives are focused around horses, I can proudly say that, the general care and management of horses is second nature to me. It is my normal day to day life.
Able to think quickly and adapt to new situations whilst also considering and maintaining a high level of health & safety. Excellent stamina, strength and general fitness. Good observational, written and vocal communication skills. Experience of dealing with many different breeds of horses, horses with behavioural problems and young stock.
Excellent humour, I can make a fantastic cup of tea and I have Willingness to endure all kinds of weather!
In my riding life I have focused my energy mostly on dressage, I feel like this is where my strength lies within riding. I have weekly lessons on my horse which is mostly focused on dressage & pole work. I have been extremely lucky in my life to have been able to ride many different types of horses which I now use to my advantage. I would describe myself as a confident and quiet rider, my instructor is available for references if required.
I have mainly focused my energy on dressage however I have also competed to BE90 level on a horse i proudly produced. Dressage: I have competed to elementary level, I do enjoy schooling horses and having regular lessons, pole work ect. Dressage is my favourite discipline of all. Jumping: I would say show jumping is my least favourite, I have competed up to 1m. I cross country school my horse regularly, we’re also partial to a team chase! photo and video references available
