How did you get started in your equine career?
My family all had horses when I was growing up, so I was naturally thrown on a horse from a young age.

I learnt the trade at Jill Tompkins riding school, following which I was very lucky to have some great Grand Prix ponies such as “Peanuckle”, “Wilful” and “Co Calico that kept me hooked on showjumping.
