I am a young dressage and show jumping rider recently returned from living and training in Belgium, living in the Yarra Valley in Victoria.
I first became a member of the Victorian Young Dressage Rider Squad in 2010 and this is where my love of dressage really grew. Some of the highlights of my dressage competition career include competing in the Marcus Oldham Aachen Challenge at the Saddleworld Dressage Festival and being awarded the Victorian Young Dressage Ambassador of the Year.

I own a five year old mare by Fisherman’s Friend out of a Figaro x Granada mare, ‘CJP Friendship’, who was purchased from CJ Park Warmbloods at three months old. I have recently begun competing her and am very excited for our future together!
I am also lucky enough to have the ride of a number of talented horses for clients.

My riding dreams are supported by an amazing team of sponsors – The NRG Team, Horseware Australia, Anitone and the Australian Equine Behaviour Centre – I cannot thank them enough for all they do.
I also owe a massive thank you to my incredible coaches Rikke Andreasen and Alistair McLean at the Australian Equine Behaviour Centre; and also to my parents who have gone above and beyond what anybody could ever expect of them to be my number one sponsors, grooms, cheer squad members, shoulders to cry on and motivators.
