She has enjoyed the experience of both successfully training, producing and competing with her own horses in driving trials, long distance riding and long distance driving (silver award winner). The aim was always to finish with a fit to continue, happy horse. Focusing on that was what brought success rather than a competitive spirit. She has a British Driving Society Certificate in carriage driving and stable management.
