The Next Chapter!

Hi All,

So where has the year gone I ask myself. Already fast approaching the end of August, with the National Championships looming.
After three and a half good years as Peter Storr’s rider, I am moving on to start an exciting solo career! Setting out as a freelance rider and trainer. I want to thank the wonderful owners at Peter’s for their support and encouragement over the years, I have gained some great friendships.
As I have said on my website, teaching is a passion for me. I have some exciting and talented combinations that I teach on a regular basis. To include little 8 year old Maddy Whelan on Beau Supreme. Watch out for that name she is a star! As she is about to compete in her first affiliated dressage competition at Novice Open! A scary place to be for a professional adult, but Maddy takes it all in her stride!
I have recently been appointed as the Wheatland Hunt and Ledbury Hunt dressage trainer, which is great fun, all my girls and boys are coming along very well! I train a few eventers which is great, they are ¬†finally realising that the key is to get a 20’s dressage!

Having left a few of my rides behind I am horseless, so looking for new rides, big or small!! I am all set to start up my clinics in Exeter again, with the addition of a clinic near Totnes in the pipeline.  Also in the pipelines is a base for myself to teach from and take horses in for schooling/ livery so watch this space!

So before I throw myself into 24/7 work I’m taking a mini break to Marbella this Thursday for 4 days. A bit of R and R!!

Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or queries!

Bye for now
