"What I love most about dressage is that you never, ever stop learning. You can improve and progress until you’re an Olympic champion and you are still not the best you can be! For me, that is why it’s such a fascinating and addictive sport."
"This year has been one of the biggest learning curves for me as I have had to deal with various setbacks in all aspects of training; however, I am coming through the other side of all our previous issues and things can only get better.
"Patience is an attribute that you certainly need to develop before pursuing a dressage career."
"I believe that you are to glide with the horse’s back and sit softly, stay straight with a balanced weight distribution and not try to actually change the horse's way of going through your seat."
"For me, the most essential thing to remember is horses should always remain horses and not be treated as machines. They have no desire to become athletes and that must be remembered. It is top priority for me that my horses have daily access to turn out, whatever the weather, other horses to socialise with, even if it is over a fence and that they enjoy their work.
