I first got introduced to horses at just 18 months of age when mum thought it would be cute to buy me a pony.  From there started my obsession with horses.  I spent many years at pony club having a go at everything it had to offer - mounted games was a strong passion of mine for many years and I represented Western Australia and Australia on several occasions up until 2007. I eventually decided to focus on eventing and have never looked back.

 My partnership with Trumby (Legal Star) began 10 years ago when he was a 3 year old. Together we have successfully competed around Australia at CCI3* and CCI4*. My career highlights with Trumby have been our individual second at the young rider Trans Tasman in Christchurch, NZL (2010) finishing on our dressage score and then our first place at the CCI4* Australian International 3 Day Event in Adelaide in 2014.

I live in the Swan Valley in Western Australia but frequently make the trip across the Nullarbor to the eastern states to compete and train. My goals are to represent Australia at Olympic and World Championship level and to keep producing young horses through to the top level.

As well as Legal Star I also have a 7 year old thoroughbred called Two Chances who is currently 1*, as well as a couple of babies that I have bred which are just starting their ridden careers.

I have an amazing amount of support from my sponsors – my parents, Back on Track, Brookleigh Equestrian Estate, Cadbury Fundraising-WA, Equestricare Equine Sports Therapy, Mitavite ,Saddles Plus and Valley Equine Vet Centre and I am very, very grateful for all of them!
