Tell us a little about yourself and what you do?

I like to travel, especially when this coincides with my work which is why my work is so perfect for me.

 

What’s the best part of your job?

The opportunity to work with so many clients and horses at such a mixture of locations.

 

Do you have any pets/horses? Tell us about them!
I have a sausage dog who likes to eat everything he can get hold of. I also have a dressage horse, but my animals are like secret agents so I don’t share much information on them!

 

What does a perfect day off look like to you? 

What’s a day off!?  Spending the day with friends sailing on the open ocean, followed by a game of polo (its my perfect day so of course, I’ve learnt how to play well!) and an evening BBQ.
