Name the most influential person in your riding career and why:
John Bourke, because of his knowledge and expertise as an old bushie breaker. The skills I've learn't from him has have carried over into everything I do. I have been very lucky to work with such an experienced horseman.
Describe your riding history:
I did not start as a dressage rider, I was however a jumper and eventer. I have a need for speed riding racehorses every morning at the track. It was not until later on that I started to focus souly on dressage.
Special highlight(s) in your riding career:
Many! From young riders scholarships, from winning championships on several different horses at all levels.
What are your ambitions?
Sky's the limit for me. Hopefully London Olympics.
Have you trained or coached any riders who have had success?
Most of my students are out currently winning and they all feed Pryde's Feeds. The feed is just as important as the training.
Special care and management considerations of your horse(s):
Lady Marmalade is super demanding and feels insecure if the slightst variation to her routine is alted. Chocolate Box is always starving hungry and requires hay 24/7 and Prestige is the easiest horse I think we own!
Which Pryde's feeds do you use and why do you like them?
BioMare Cubes & EasiPrep Concentrate - for my young stallion and growing horses. I feed them this product because I got great results with these feeds and it is so simple!!
EasiResponse - my horses look great and go without the 'fizz', and are in excellent condition.
What do you require from you horse feed?
Cool, responsive energy - Lady Marmalade is super sensitive.
High energy - Prestige needs lots of energy
Coat condition - Comes naturally with the feed
No fuss breeding feeds & specific young horse feeds - I know I am doing the best for my youngsters with Pryde's.
How will Pryde's Sponsorship make a difference to you?
Working closer with Pryde's will help me get my horses even better than what they are now. I take pride in how my horses look.
