I was born in Brighton and moved with my family to Utah in the USA when I was three. Although I discovered horses at a young age, up until my early teens I had only ridden in a western saddle.
A chance lesson in a jumping saddle and a clinic in my home town with Mark and Tanya Kyle planted the seeds which would eventually see me graduating a year early from school to travel to England and immerse myself in the British Eventing circuit.
Fortunately from the age of fifteen I was based with, and mentored by, Mark and Tanya Kyle. Working on their yard and riding any horse I could, provided me with a rounded education in both horse care and riding, providing me with a real insight into how to produce and compete top level event horses.
With their guidance, I was able to achieve my first goal of riding in the GB Under 21 Team, winning a Gold medal on my first ever event horse. An amazing mare called Quixotic (Delphi) whom I produced up the levels.
In time, as I progressed as a rider I began renting stables from the Kyle’s in order to start my own business producing and selling young horses and teaching students. I purchased my second horse, Zero Flight (Louie). A combination of my inexperience and Louie’s cheekiness ensured an undulating rise up through the levels alongside Delphi.
By 2012 both horses had achieved placings at 4 Star, with us winning Best under 25 Rider at Burghley two years running, as well as best first timer at both events and Best British Mare at Badminton Horse Trials. A top 10 finish at Burghley saw Zero Flight selected for Team GB's World Class Programme and then subsequently on to the 2012 London Olympics long list.
Fast forward a few more years and after lots more eventing, a huge amount of support from owners and clients, plus some careful planning, hard work, and some luck. We have managed to build our own yard at Mushill Farm.
This is a team sport and our team is invaluable, with the inevitable ups and downs owning an event horse with us puts you at the centre of this emotional roller-coaster.
