About me

I started riding when I was 3 years old and was always more keen on jumping than my ponies were so I spent a lot of time falling off! When I started riding the 13.2hh Tom, things got better and I had a lot of success eventing. I started to concentrate more on dressage in my teens and when I was 14 I won a team silver medal at the Pony European Championships.

What is dressage?

Dressage was originally developed by the cavalry in the 17th century to help improve the obedience and responsiveness of the horses. The word ‘dressage’ basically means training. It’s all about creating the perfect partnership between horse and rider. The ultimate aim is that the partnership becomes so strong that onlookers would think the horse is performing on his own without visible cues from the rider. With dressage training the horse becomes a true athlete, improving his suppleness and flexibility whilst enhancing his natural movement.
