Has anyone heard of her? I am pretty sure I am going to her yard in the summer for work experience, where I will work and get lessons from her in return on either one, or both of my horses.

She is a 4* eventer, I know that, but does anyone know anything else?

Thanks!

Plenty of opinions on her on here. But by all accounts a nice person & a very competitive rider. I am sure you will learn loads & have a great time. I certainly wouldnt say she is 'unknown', she is regularly competing at a fairly high level.

Good Luck

I have a friend who went to hers a few summers ago to do exactly the same thing. She said although she learnt a lot, she had to work extremely hard for her keep, and lessons were a bit on the thin side at times. But at the same time, she came back a reformed rider! You'll learn lots, tbh, im a little jealous i can't get this oppurtunity

Don't know her but I may be related..... If I was arsed to find out that is!!!! It's the wrong side of the family so I've no interest really to find out but hey?!?!

There was something a tiny bit contraversial on here after Badders, but I never did find out what, however I don't htink it was good!

Very nice person, although quite shy. Works extremely hard herself so no doubt expects her team to do likewise! Personally I think she's a good jockey, just desperate to do well hence some of the criticism. I think you'll have a great time and learn loads - she's got a couple of gorgeous dogs with fab characters too, BTW

She has a great sense of humour and a good teaching eye, a friend had lessons for a while!! As TD says, she does expect people to work hard, but only because she does! So fairs fair

Thanks for the info guys, but this thread was started last summer haha, so I've already done the work experience. It was amazing, she is a really good rider, and my riding has improved massively.
