Firstly many thanks for taking the time to visit my web-site, which I hope you will find informative and interesting.

My riding career really began at Pony Club and my first big success came when I won the Pony Club championships aged just 14. Other successes followed and in 2006 I won the Young Event Rider Showjumping Championships and finished my Junior Career by posting the best score out of the British Team at the Junior Europeans in Saumar. During this year I also rode in my first CIC*** at Barbary and Hartbury and finished the season fourth in the U21 rankings. By 2008 I had risen to the top of the U21 rankings, accumulating the most National and International points, and had two horses selected for the Young Riders Team.

2009 however was when I reached my goal of competing at Badminton with Stormstay (Henry) who truly has been the horse of a lifetime. During our faultless clear round cross country I obtained some notoriety by being chased by a dog for some considerable part of the course. If you have never seen the clip you are able to watch it here. The wonderful Henry went on to give me two more faultless rounds at Burghley before I decided to retire him from top level competitions.

Since then I have been concentrating on producing World Class horses for the performance market and I gain a great deal of satisfaction from taking a green four year old and turning it into a confident, balanced and successful horse. One of my most notable successes was “Allercombe Ellie” who was bred just two minutes away from my home near Exeter. I produced “Ellie” from a five year old up to three star level and in 2014 she was selected for the World Equestrian Games. Other recent highlights include a successful run at Blenheim with Leonardo VIII and a podium finish at Ballindenisk International with Isle Valley. You can view my results by following this link.

Please stay and have a browse through the site – read my blog which will keep you up to date on the goings on at the yard and competitions, or follow me on Facebook (see link above). If you would like to contact me about training, riding your horse or any sponsorship opportunities then pick up the phone, I may be sat on a horse but my mobile is never far away!
