Annie initially started out as a wannabe eventer but only got to novice level. She quickly turned to endurance which ticked all the boxes for her as it required fitness, stamina, determination, family involvement and developing a unique bond with a horse over such long distances.
She started off with a thoroughbred ex-racehorse before moving to Arab horses. After a few tricky starts, she clicked with a horse she had on loan who took her to advanced level and second place in the National Championships.
Since then Annie has had several Arab horses for endurance, one of the most notable being Dilmun who took her to the World Equestrian Games in Normandy. She now has Fantom who has stepped out from Dilmun’s shadow and on whom she hopes to contest the 2017 European Championships.
