I began doing Horse Sports when I was a child. Initially at Bluewater Equestrian Group then Woodstock Horse Sports Club. I have been a member of, or attended Woodstock Horse Sports Club since it all began 30 years ago 😳 (ssshhh 🤫 that makes me feel old!!).

I grew up on a cattle property near Townsville and it was nice to take the horses and do something other than chase cows and dodge trees.

I lived in Charters Towers for a few years and was the President of the Charters Towers Horse Sports Club at one point. I still used to travel to Townsville to attend Woodstock Horse Sports and Rupertswood Horse Sports. It is my way of having fun with my horse and friends.
