On leaving College I was lucky enough to obtain a job working for German Dressage rider and trainer Angela Niemeyer Eastwood. Whilst based with Angela I was fortunate enough to gain the ride on several competition horses and was the yards overall reserve champion in 1998. As part of my job I helped with the breaking and training of youngstock. One of the youngsters I backed qualified for a class at the Royal International Horse Show.
I taught at several yards after leaving my job with Angela, helping my clients gain in confidence and achieve goals with their horses. One of my most successful clients now runs her own stud, breeding and showing Highland ponies, she has competed at many high level shows including Three Counties, Horse Of The Year Show and Olympia.
