Biography

Anne recalls having always been around horses and joined the Horse Ranger Association as a young girl. During her school years, Anne used to work at a local stable in her spare time and, by the time she was 16, she was running a yard of 80 horses at weekends. It wasn’t until she was 40 and her husband sold his business that she finally became a horse owner and had the opportunity to compete. They bought a farm in Wales and turned it into a holiday home and riding school.

Anne made her Paralympic debut in 1996 when the sport first joined the programme and in 2003, she was awarded the British Dressage Outstanding Contribution Award for her services to Paralympic dressage.

Anne has won 12 gold as well as countless silver and bronze medals at World, European and Paralympic level - most recently securing Team Gold and two Individual Silver medals at the 2015 European Championships in Deauville.
