I have been associated with horses for more than 40 years, and my focus has been on dressage riding for more than 30 years. Before this, I was riding eventing, showjumping, racehorses in track work, and various other horse sports. I am available for dressage coaching.

For many years, all my performance horses have been horses we have bred with our stallion A’Seduction, including A Spider Bite (CC), A Heaven Sent (Penny) and A Snap Decision (Snap), and A’Seduction himself of course, until we sold CC in December 2020.

The years 2015-2016 have been difficult with personal heartbreaks, a dear friend passing on and our property near Ballina having been acquired by the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) to make way for the new Highway. Still, in 2016, we have been able to compete twice with CC and once with Penny. In 2015, we have competed with CC at the Brisbane CDI and she placed twice in the top five (2nd and 5th place).
