1 What’s your favourite equestrian moment?
I have 2 – I loved watching my fellow Aussie Edwina Tops Alexander win the inaugural LGCT Super Grand Prix in 2018 in Prague. But Gillian Rolton going cross country at the Atlanta Olympics with a broken collar bone and ribs after nearly stacking it and STILL winning gold is all time.
2 What’s your biggest pet peeve?
Incorrect use of grammar and spelling mistakes in published materials. I need to get over it…and myself…
3 Fav food?
It’s a tie between Chips and Crisps.

Olympia – it’s so festive. Also anything down at Bicton Arena I really like – great showground, close to the beach and everyone is really friendly and helpful.

Coby 16.2 Dark Bay KWPN gelding. Darcy a female black Labrador and Bingley a male blonde labradoodle (Darcy and Bingley are named after characters from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice)

A horse cruising solo around the lorry park, helping itself to snacks and supplies. I laughed until I realised it was mine.

Sunscreen and a functioning seafaring vessel.
