Highlight of career to date?
Apart from being supported by Barnsby that is! Barbury Castle – One of the first aims within VBEventing when only focusing on Re-Training Racehorses was to qualify a horse for the Retraining of Racehorse Championships held each year at the Barbury Castle Horse Trials. This was achieved last year and we look forward to returning again this and following years with more and more horses.

Crystal Ka, my Wonderboy – He is the one that ignited, inspired and participated in this journey that we are currently on, including winning my first ever BE Event in 2011.
What do you enjoy most about your chosen discipline?

Favourite Barnsby product and why?
My absolutely amazing Pink Liberte Mono-Flap Event saddle. It is a really striking colour that can’t fail to be noticed. I feel safe and secure, yet flexible when riding in it.
