I completed the level 3 extended diploma in equine business management at Hartpury college, which expanded on the knowledge I had from owning my own horses.

During my time at Hartpury I also worked for Robert and Claire Oliver on their showing yard completing yard duties and riding horses.
I then worked for a short time for Rowland and Ali Fernyhough at their showjumping and eventing yard and completed all yard duties and worked horses from the ground.

i have also achieved my BHS stage 1 exam and plan to continue to compete more stages.
