What a year it has been.... my 5th season in the USA, and first year out on my own!  I write this from Sydney Australia as I return from the US consulate with another 5 years stamped on my Passport!

I am so happy to be based in a country that can provide an event rider with so much opportunity.
We have a fabulous team of people and horses, which has grown from just 8 horses with Stacey and myself, to 20 horses adding Chris, Charlie and Nikki. 
I am very greatful to be Working with Phillip and Evie out of True Prospect Farm, who have made all of this possible with excellent training and a fantastic facility.

Riding in 124 events, winning 21 times, with 13 seconds and 11 third places finishes, while sometimes riding up to 9 horses at the one event takes an efficient and hard working team!

We have big plans for 2013, kicking it off with a move into the new Aiken facility, Victoria Farm, which is owned by Curran and Margy Simpson.  The winter season will be followed up with a spring trip to Ireland in search of adding a couple more young horses to the team.

Thank you to all of our owners and sponsors!
