Hello everyone,

I am 24 years of age and I am a Dressage rider located in Kilmore Victoria.aamage1

I have always shared the love of riding and training horses since I can remember. I have originated from Show Horse roots where I made regular appearances at Ag and Royal shows then turning towards the performance world of equestrian; ventured into Eventing, Showjumpjng and Dressage. I loved the challenge and loved watching the professional riders make the task at hand look so effortless. This has lead to where I am now today, pursuing the dream of becoming one of Australia’s top Dressage riders.

I have a fantastic team of horses with more on the way, a great network of owners and sponsors, a hard working group of students and a loving partner to share all of this with. I strive everyday to further develop each horse I ride and guide each rider I instruct in the right direction to achieve their goals. I realise that to advance in the Dressage world it is a long, slow process but a rewarding process. All horses are unique with different needs, hence then, why I train by own of mantra of “always riding to your horses needs, not to your own desires!” This is my definition of harmony.

Career highlights so far for me have included:

Producing horses from the very beginning up to FEI level with squad listings both at State and National level.aamage2

All of this would not be possible without the hard working group of supporters and sponsors behind the team. I am very grateful to Jin Stirrup – The Official Australian Distributor for welcoming me into their team of sponsored riders and I hope I can do the team proud showing off their fantastic range of products at their best.
