Hi, delighted to be part of the stable equestrian team and not sure if it’s part of the criteria, but I too am very fast approaching the big 40!!
I own and run MCF Equestrian, a dressage, eventing and rehabilitation yard in Draycott, Staffordshire along with my husband Dan.
I’m the dressage diva of the family and have 4 horses and ponies currently which are :
Tigger – a 3yr old 15hh gelding by Camlough Delphi currently long reigning and about to start ridden work
Donny – a 14.2hh 6yr old Dutch pony that I am producing for sale, currently training at elementary level
Otis – a 15.1hh 9yr old KWPN gelding who’s the most talented horse I’ve ever owned but has struggled with injury in the 3 years I’ve owned him – I’ve never actually got off the yard with him as it’s been 1 step forward, 2 steps back ￼ my aim is to get to any competition!!
Billy – he’s my main man!! I’d marry him if I could! He’s now 16 and I’ve owned him since he was rising 4. He’s 15.2hh KWPN (I like my Dutch boys!!!!) we are currently competing at Prix St George’s and have done pretty well during our career. We’ve won and been placed at the BD Regional Finals and have competed at the Nationals several times, highlight coming 5th at Medium level. My aim for him is to keep doing what we’re doing for as long as we can and for him to be happy and sound.
Otis was brought with the intention of training through the levels behind Billy but now I’m more optimistic that Tigger will fill those hooves – big hooves to fill little man!!
Being only 4ft 11” ￼ I specialise in producing small horses and ponies. I’m also a dressage and Equipilates™￼ Trainer. I run rider alignment clinics all over the country, focusing on improving the horses way of going through improving the riders position and effectiveness.
I am extremely lucky to be able to say I love my job ￼(sometimes need reminding of this in the depths of winter).
