HOW DID YOU GET INTO EVENT RIDING?
I started riding at the age of five and I have been eventing since I was 13. I got into Event Riding through my mum and dad who have riden all of their lives.
I have also been a member of the Derwent Hunt pony Club for many years, I have worked my way up by regularly attending rallies, pony club camps and by representing the branch at area championships.
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST SPORTING ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR?
My greatest achievement so far has been winning the grassroots Pony Club eventing Championship in 2018 on a homebred horse.
HOW WILL MONEYWEB’S INVESTMENT HELP YOU TO DEVELOP IN YOUR DISCIPLINE?
The Moneyweb investment will help me immensely to move up the levels in eventing. This will give me the opportunitiy to compete further afield with the ever increasing costs of eventing.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST AMBITION IN EVENT RIDING?
My biggest ambition is to compete at the Badminton Grassroots Championship.
WHO WOULD YOU SAY IS YOUR SPORTING ICON AND WHY?
My sporting icon is Piggy March, as I’ve always looked up to her and thought she’s an amazing rider, and I aspire to be like her one day.
