I would like to compete Divina at Grand Prix, and be able to train Bliss and our other young horses to that top level as well. And I’d like to study to be a vet, maybe specialising in Equine Reproduction.

Future Aspirations

Listen to all the advice that is thrown at you.

We ride horses, not machines, and it’s ok if it doesn’t always go to plan.

Listen and learn from it, work to fix it and try again.
