Competing regularly keeps my own riding ability, experience and knowledge improving which is essential to progress. Every time we compete we learn and can take something from it, even if it is I won’t do that again next time! I truly believe that you never stop learning. Every horse and rider have different qualities and abilities and it is important to me that I keep on improving to get the most out of both parts of the partnership.

I want to pass on the enjoyment that I have had from my riding to others that want to learn. A saying that I am not ashamed of repeating time and time again is “It doesn’t matter whether you are a happy hacker or you want to compete at Badminton, we all must enjoy our riding at whatever level we are at. Lets face it this sport of ours is very time consuming and it isn’t cheap!”

I believe that a reliable, friendly and professional attitude can inspire and motivate. Groundwork, support and problem solving, lead to improvement whether your goal is to compete or complete! Sometimes an objective could seem daunting however, I believe that small stepping stones and progressing through enjoyment make that goal possible.
