- April 22, 2018
I am an enthusiastic, diligent twenty-year-old with a strong work ethic and a quick, willingness to learn who takes great pride in a job well done. I was born in England but grew up in Sydney, Australia. I started riding when I was eleven until just after I finished school (this was due to injury and wanting to focus on study). I’ve owned an Australian stock horse gelding who was sold just before entering my senior years at school.
