Biography

I live at home with my Parents and my two younger sisters at Halefield Stud where we run an Equestrian coaching and competition yard.

I am currently at Oundle School and fit my riding around my studies and school sports.   I really enjoy Hockey and tennis and play for our school teams.   I have been lucky enough to be part of the school tennis team that went on tour to Barcelona and have been selected to go on the school hockey tour to South Africa in 2020.   Any spare time I get I'll spend it watching Merlin on TV with my sisters, eating Katsu Curry or snapchatting on my phone.

I started my riding career in the pony club and then joined the working hunter pony circuit.   My Grandfather found me a 13hh WHP pony called Bella who I rode for four years.  She took me to numerous wins including Royal International, and Horse Of The Year Show.  In early 2017 I was extremely fortunate to be given the opportunity to ride Newbridges Master Brown by Stacy Webb and Andy Brown of Newbridge Sport Horses.  We went through the Children On Horses  trial system and were selected to represent Team GBR at the Nations Cup Shows at Sentower Park and Weirden.  Following our second place in the Grand Prix at Sentower and our Clear and four in the Nations Cup at Weirden we were selected to represent Team GBR at the European COH Championships in Samorin, Slovakia.   As Part of the Team including Oliver Fletcher, Jocasta Symons and Angel Tough we won theTeam Gold medal on a score of 0. 

During this successful period, along with the continued support of my owners Stacy and Andy, I have received equipment support from Voltaire Design UK, LeMieux Products and Newbridge Group

In 2018 I moved up to juniors with Newbridges Master Brown and was selected to jump at the Nations Cup in Lampretchausen, Austria where i jumped for Four and Clear to help secure a win in the Nations Cup. The highlight of 2018 was being part of the junior team with Oliver Tuff, Benjamin Clark, Jack Whittaker and Jodie Hall McAteer in Sentower park where we won the Junior Nations Cup Final.

My Team of horses at the moment consists of Boston (Newbridges Master Brown) who is 12 years old but thinks he is still 5.  Dream (Dream Du Toultia Z) who is 7 years old and about as chilled out as they come.   I am also fortunate enough to ride two more of Stacy and Andy's horses, Ginn (Newbridges Gitender SW) who is 8 years old and Jack (Newbridges Jackpot SW) who is a 5 year old.  I love riding all of these horses and can’t wait to see what the future holds for our team.

I am honoured to be part of the BEF World Class Programme as this will give me the opportunity to learn so much about our sport of Showjumping.
