Currently working as a Riding Instructor at Stag Lodge Stables. Started riding at age 8. Received my first horse, an off the track thoroughbred, at age 13. Trained and schooled him for Junior Show jumping, competing up to the height class of 1.20m. Attended regular courses in Riding, Horse Care and Stable Management. Since the age of 18 I have ridden as an Adult Show jumper up to the height class of 1.10m on several off the track thoroughbreds which I have trained. I am a calm and confident rider and I enjoy the work with the young horses coming off the track. I focus on basic flat work, first teaching the young horse to find balance in self-carriage. I focus on rhythm and straightness before teaching the horse to collect. Besides Show Jumping I have competed in Eventing up to the height of 90cm. Volunteered at Boschkop Sport Horse stud for backing and schooling of the Warmblood horses bred at this stud.
Extensive experience retraining and schooling off the track thoroughbreds for show jumping.
Riding novice, nervous, highly strung, and young horses.
I am a calm and confident rider who enjoys the challenge of retraining thoroughbreds for jumping.
