British Showjumping and HOYS Showing
I am an amateur, North Yorkshire based horse owner and rider. British Showjumping is my passion and focus but in previous years I have competed in the show ring. I was fortunate enough to qualify a range of horses for RIHS and HOYS, and I also judged at numerous shows as a panel judge for various societies.
I have gained experience and knowledge from working for several professional yards in a range of disciplines. Since becoming a secondary school teacher 14 years ago, I have completed additional equestrian qualifications, such as Level 5 Equine Behavioural Science, as I value learning.
Furthermore, after winning the TSM BETA International Amateur Rider Award in 2014, I decided to explore equestrian media by writing freelance for national equestrian magazines, working as a micro influencer and being part of The Equestrian Business Awards judging process. I enjoy breaking horses in, retraining racehorses and supporting other riders to achieve their goals.
I am thrilled to be selected as a Synovium ambassador for the year ahead. KWPN gelding, Kornetto, purchased by Becky Matthewman, joined me this month and with veterinary advice and top quality scientifically developed healthcare, Kornetto will have the best backing to begin his BS journey.
I am so excited to share his results using Agility this summer. Earlier this season, I produced Leyward Diamond Jubilee and began her showjumping education at British Novice level. She qualified for the second rounds as well as Star of the North in her first sixth months.
