How did you get started in your equine career?
Peter rode from 14 yrs old from a non-horsey family up in Northland. He trained and gained his BHSI in UK and has been a Pony Club National coach for 30 years, and started out as an event rider before seeing the sense in dressage
Debbie was born in Kenya and didn’t get to ride until she was 10yrs old and then it was trekking in Africa – then when I went to boarding school in England we had horses and could train for coaching qualifications and I also went on to get my BHSI and a BA Hons degree in equine and business studies
