Most memorable equestrian experience:

There have been a few…. from being the unknown pony rider winning the selection trials and going onto my first British team in Sweden, getting the letter saying I had been selected onto the Olympic squad with Fernando, but most of all when I won the challenge, everyone there supporting me, it was very exciting!

In what year did your sponsorship with Albion Start:

1998

How did your sponsorship come about?

I won a competition where the prize was an Albion saddle, they made me a perfect saddle with extra short flaps and a small seat, it was amazing! I had always rode in Albion and was riding in a very old Albion Legend at the time (I still have it) they have been amazing to me ever since!

Why did you choose to work with Albion:

Because they are the best… I love their saddles. I had my father’s hunter to convert into a dressage horse and he made the junior team, I rode him in the old Albion saddle and it was the only saddle I could do sitting trot on him.

What is your favourite Albion product and why:

The Platinum saddle for the comfort and support, the way they sit on the horse and the advantage of being able to change the fit. I also love the KB Swarovski Browbands, the quality and class are second to none. I also like the reins that are half rubber and then I have continental notches on them which are fantastic to ensure I keep my reins at the right length.

When /why did you first start riding:

When I was two my parents and my brother and I moved into the present family home which had a field full of pregnant mares at the bottom of our garden, I would often escape and mum would find me in the middle of the mares. I nagged my parents from then, finally I got one aged 10 and I just got on and rode, I haven’t stopped since!

Best advice given:

Someone once said to me ‘how lucky you are’ and Stephen Clarke turned round and said ‘yes, and the harder she works the luckier she gets’.

Likes:

My dog Barnsley, dancing and running.

Dislikes:

Bad manners.

Prefered Kit:
