How long have you been riding? I learnt to ride at my local riding school from the age of 7 and then worked on the yard at weekends as a teenager in return for free rides! Working with horses is a dream come true!
I gained my BHS AI and HND in Equine Management and took the decision to work in horse feed industry back in 2002. After four years of working for Allen & Page I joined Dengie in 2006 as Area Sales Manager before being promoted to Regional Manager.
I love the variety of work at Dengie – I can be at a yard clinic giving dietary advice to horse-owners - seeing them overcome feeding problems is rewarding; visiting retailers and stockists with new products and promotions to working at events, such as Burghley or Your Horse Live; two days are never the same.
I spent many years riding and competing, mainly British Dressage up to Elementary level, latterly on my 16hh, Gelderlander mare, Ellie, who now lives with my Mum and is semi-retired. Sadly I’ve had to put a stop to riding due to injury plus having children means that there’s not much time left to ride anyway!
