I have ridden for over 14 years where I started out at Sea Horses Riding Centre in Byron Bay, then moving on to Pegasus Park Equestrian Centre. I spent 12 months training there until I bought my horse Flash at the end of 2007.
Flash and I joined Mullumbimby Pony Club in 2008, and I rode mostly for pleasure - trail riding, mounted games, sporting as well as dressage and show jumping. I then moved onto Brunswick Valley Pony Club, where I was fortunate enough to have had very serious and advance training with some of the best and skilled riders and trainers in the industry. We competed heavily and competitively at various types of competitions- gymkhanas, agricultural shows, interschools as well as hack and dressage competitions.
Flash is now almost 16 and although we've taken a slight step back from heavy competition, I still lightly compete and ride at home almost every day.
I also work at Byron Bay Mobile Equine Practice as an Equine Veterinary Nurse
I've always loved & obsessed over horses, and this passion shows in my training technique. I have trained those that are entering the industry and I can't wait to start training TVN Students.
