I’m a 21yr old aspiring dressage rider based in Surrey. I have Cystic Fibrosis, which is a serious lung condition that affects the amount of air I can breathe in due to my lungs producing thick mucus. I don’t let this stop me from riding, or from achieving my goals, but I also try to inspire others with similar conditions to follow their dreams. I own 17hh 9yrs mare by United x Negro called Frouwke, aka Flora. I went to Holland with Rebecca Hughes to find my next horse and that¹s when I found my next superstar. Her character, lightness in the hand and temperament really grabbed me and I instantly clicked with her and her paces are impressive and her canter is spectacular. When Flora arrived, she was quite nervous, but now she’s really become so much more confident and has really begun to show her true talent. She has so far won or come in the top ten in all of her competitions, even getting our PB in our second Elementary in 2018 with 77%! I hope to take Flora up the grades and reach PSG. I have now added another steed to my team in the form of Goulane Freeboy, aka Benji. I bought him to produce in March 2018, and have fun on. He has taken some time to gain confidence and come out of his shell, but now he’s such a bundle of laughs and is so cheeky! He’s showing great promise in his flatwork, and has an amazing jump so I’m hoping to take him eventing this year.
