I started riding when I was 5 and have loved it ever since! I did my first BE when I was 11 (12th year of birthday) in an 80T coming 9th at my first go! I did my first BE Novice aged 13 and the following year campaigned in pony trials with my pony Jack, due to injury I missed my last year in ponies.
I got Romeo at the beginning of 2015 and he took me round my first CIC* and CCI* very successfully and also round my first intermediate where we went double clear! My biggest achievement with him so far is winning Chatsworth International CIC* this year in a section full of top names and being selected for the U18 development squad 2015 where we went to Millstreet, Ireland for the CIC* and came 4th in a large international section!
I got Leo at the end of last summer and in 4 events we went from 90 to novice being placed in 3 of them including a win, and going double clear round his first novice! This year he has been going very well at novice including a win and I look forward to moving him up the grades in the future!
I am very proud to be a part of Team PE!
