I spent quite a few years competing in dressage with my Thoroughbred who I trained up to medium level dressage before I had to retire him for his arthritis. I then had a break to start my young horse under saddle who is now training elementary level dressage. I also competed and worked with a number of other horses while at Oakwood Riding School.
A private dressage stud I spent some time at, I worked with a number of different horses with the aim of competing including a PSG level mare.
