Why did you choose to work with Albion:

They are forward thinking, innovative and fantastic to work with.  Their attention to detail is second to none and the follow up service is exceptional.

What is your favourite Albion product and why?

The Kontact lite – comfortable and neutral, gives the horse ultimate freedom to jump and gives the rider support and comfort without interference.

When /why did you first start riding?

My mother has been a huge influence on my riding career - we always had ponies at home - my mum and dad both rode around Badminton. Mum is DC of the West Street branch of the Pony Club. My brother and sister all rode too.

Best advice given:

My mother once said to me if you can’t control your nerves how can you expect the horse to control his.

Likes:

Spending time with my wife and two boys Oli and Thomas. We have two lurchers, Molly and Turtle who come to most events with us. Also we have some chickens at the yard at home that keep us busy!
