Description I have been riding since I was 5 years old and began helping out at a riding school from the age of 7.

I have recently finished High School and currently work a part-time job so that I can pursue my passion for horse riding before furthering my education in the future. The horses I have been trying to compete for the past few years have been extremely unfortunate and often suffered from freak injuries and illnesses. Therefore my goal for this year, which I am determined to achieve and hopefully surpass, is to compete at the British Eventing Novice level and then progress as far as I can.

Once I was back on my feet and given the all clear, I decided once again that I was ready to start eventing. After 8 months of recovery I began the search for a new event horse. I found this beautiful grey warmblood, Demo, who had already competed in a bit of eventing that seemed the perfect fit for me. I have currently done two BE90’s at the end of 2017 and looking forward to starting 2018 at BE100.

I am very lucky as my family and riding instructor, Carly Adams have been extremely supportive and willing throughout my ups and downs and I know t
