I first started riding at Fergushill Riding School when I was 10 years old and I struck gold 2 years later when I responded to a rider advertisement in the local newspaper. This advert was the start of my wonderful equestrian journey when I got the opportunity to ride 2 fabulous horses for over 10 years!
In 2015, I bought my horse, Zac (who can be seen in my picture).
Zac tries so hard at anything I ask him to do which means we have had a go at pretty much everything… Eventing, team dressage / SJ, pairs dressage, ride outs and we love it all!
Zac lives with my grey Section A pony, Storm. Storm is the cutest, cheekiest and most lovable pony on the planet (or at least that’s what I think!). Storm’s best friend is Lilly who has rode Storm for many years and their favourite thing to do together is go hacking so she can show him off.
Before Zac, most of my competing was at Pony Club level, so I didn’t really know where to start in terms of joining a riding club and meeting new people. I decided to join Ayr riding club as I felt the variety of activities they offered suited me best. Soon after joining, I quickly realised how friendly all our members were so… I joined the committee! Joining Ayr Riding Club has allowed me to meet new people, get involved in all the activities, take part in team competitions and social events that I never would have done if I hadn’t joined the club.
I hope, as a committee, we can continue to organise fun filled activities and competitions and welcome our current and new members back year after year and hope it brings them as much fun as it has brought me!
