After university and some travelling I started work for Judy Bradwell. She was instrumental in turning me in to a professional rider and I had 4 great years with her. I have now been based at home for five years and the yard and number of horses has gradually increased over time! We currently have about 15 horses in work, at varying stages of their eventing career. The stars of the yard are Allstar B, who took me to my first Burghley last year and Zenshera who has taken me to three nations cups representing Great Britain. We also have great fun producing the babies, and this year the first batch of horses I broke in have reached 7, and have upgraded to Intermediate and the four year olds are gaining their first insight in to competitions in the young event horse classes.
Every day is a different one here at Hallington but we certainly have plenty of long ones. Fortunately I have an amazing team of people behind me who are well just amazing! Ruth, my groom, Sarah who travel to competitions with us and Mum and Dad who never seem to stop, all keep me sane and make our days fun.
