I first came to High Beech Riding School when I was 8 years old, riding on a lesson every Sunday morning. Having taken up riding elsewhere it was definitely the Forest and friendly atmosphere that attracted me to High Beech. I was very keen to get more hands on and learn all I could about horses so luckily it wasn't long before I was offered the chance to volunteer to help with yard duties all day on a Sunday. I quickly fell in love with everything horsey! Since then at High Beech I have achieved my BHS Ride and Road Safety and undertaken an apprenticeship through Writtle College which I successfully completed last year, all of which enabled me to escort rides through the forest and start training to coach lessons. This year I have been promoted to Assistant Yard Manager and am loving my job. I am continuing my training and looking to achieve BHS qualifications to further my coaching skills and horse management knowledge. Here I am pictured with two of my favourite ponies. Romeo whom I have grown up with and has taught me loads and Nirvana who is a newer pony to the Riding School but who has quickly found a special place in my heart. I have enjoyed many happy hours hacking in the forest and schooling both of these beauties, High Beech is such a great place to learn, I can truly say that it is my happy place.
