My life with horses started very young and I have been passionate about them ever since. I have just resigned from judging on five national panels after many years and now have more time to concentrate on helping others to ride side saddle and cross saddle. I have produced many winners at National Championships in showing and side saddle, several at open level. Actively my love is balanced schooling and hunting. My true vocation is helping children who are having problems with their ponies because it puts the joy of riding back into their lives. Basic correct flatwork and trust are my starting blocks so that respect is formed on both sides.
