I started off in the show ring as a 9 year old and was fortunate to have a successful showing career until the age of 21, most notably 2015 Grand National Rider 17-21 years as well as wins at Royals and Horse of the Years. After completing my degree at the end of 2015, I had the opportunity to take a gap year in Holland where I worked and rode at Dressuurstal van Baalen, an Olympic and International Dressage stable under the guidance of Coby & Marlies van Baalen. I trained there for 15 months and imported my now 6 year old Dutch Warmblood Jackson at the end of my stay.
Since returning home I’ve started my own boutique professional Dressage training stable at my parent’s beautiful Southern Highlands property. I train, compete and sell horses as well as giving lessons on a weekly basis. Dressage has fast become my passion in the short four years I’ve been training and competing. Having a background in showing I pride myself on the way I dress for work everyday and love to wear good quality garments that make me feel and look fantastic on and off the horse. This is why I’m so thrilled to be working with the Queen Equestrian Team!
Charlotte has been a dear friend of mine for as long as I’ve been showing horses! I’ve been following and admiring her journey from fashion student to graduate and now fashion designer and it’s been an absolute pleasure to have been a small part of that journey. Having the opportunity to represent a brand that aligns with my own values is so humbling and I’m thrilled to have been given this amazing opportunity.
