Tell us about your horse

7yo by Clerkenwell aiming for 1* this year, 13yo by King Persian aiming for 2* eventing, and luckily have got the ride of a few young horses 

Tell us a horse joke

What do race horses eat? Fast food!

What do you do when you aren't with your horse?

Mostly eating or sleeping

What do you love about the horsey community?

Especially in eventing people can be so supportive and helpful.

What do you dislike about the horsey community?

How warm ups tend to be a war zone! 

Do your family share your passion for horses?

My mum and I are the main horsey lovers, my dad tends to laugh/ sigh at us but comes to the odd event but is very supportive! And my brother stays out of it completely, he likes cars! 

Tell us your funniest horse related story?

Don't think I could share it! 

Who is your favourite famous horse rider?

Sir Mark Todd, he is so cool and makes it all look like a walk in the park!
