Having started riding fairly late at the age of 13, I rapidly fell in love with the thrill of jumping at speed. I eventually realised the importance of dressage and I am constantly training in all three eventing disciplines and this year achieved my dream of competing at Badminton. I am very proud that Continuity and I have made Badminton history by being the first combination to compete at grassroots and at 5*.
I am currently competing my own horse, Continuity, up to FEI 5*. So far our best result was 10th place at Pau International in our first FEI CIC4* and completing Badminton 5* with a clear round cross country. This follows our success at 3* and 2* and being selected to compete in the Event Rider Masters series. My focus for the coming season is on enhancing our international status and campaigning my young horses.
