I first started my competition life as a show jumper, with some eventing. Then I was talented spotted by GBR Para Dressage, and so became my career in Para Dressage, leading to becoming a member of the GBR Para Team that won the first Team Gold in Atlanta 1996, where I also won 2 Individual Golds. I have 3 World Championship Golds, plus numerous awards. At this time I concurrently trained my own horse to, and competed at Advanced level Dressage. I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Equine Studies. Since immigrating to New Zealand, I have competed Nationally and Internationally for NZL, and have taken up coaching on an informal basis. I specialise in challenges outside of the box.
