I am a 38-year-old show jumper from the Manawatu. I live on a thoroughbred horse stud “Fairdale” with my husband and two children: Molly (4) and Harvey (3). I have ridden horses all my life and my top horse and partner of many years “Tinapai” took me from young horse classes through young rider classes and onto World Cup competition. We spent time competing in Europe and the United States and he was retired in 2017 at the grand age of 19 years old.
For the 23/24 season I will be campaigning my longtime partner Faratona STS. We were the winners of the Harrison Lane Pro Am Rider Series for 22/23. Faratona is a 13-year-old, feisty bay mare who has been with me since her 5-year-old season.
My career highlights include:
• Lady Rider of the Year 2011 & 2014
• Grand Prix series winner 2012/13
• Member of the NZ team vs. Australia at HOY 2011
• Mystery Creek World Cup Winner 2015
• Hawke’s Bay Royal World Cup Winner 2016
- Harrison Lane Pro Am Rider Series Winner 2022/23
I’ve used Equine America products for over 10 years now. My favourite products are Cortaflex HA Super Fenn for joint support, Ventilator for airway support and No More Moods for healthy hormone levels in my mare. An essential competition product for my horse is the BLS Super Strength. I can trust these products to work and the entire range is legal to use during competition so there is no need to worry about withholding times.
