"I have been riding since I was 6 years old and, being the son of a farmer, it was easy for me to have my own pony. I was a member of The Pony Club till my late teens, taking part in lots of activities including Cross Country and Tetrathlon (riding cross country, swimming, running and shooting). I trained for my Assistant Instructors Exam in 1977-78 and my Intermediate Instructors Exam in 1980. From 1979 to October 2012, I worked as an Instructor and progressed on to help set up and manage Riding Schools for other people. I love seeing people progressing, enjoying their riding and just being around horses." Since October 2012 i have been a freelance instructor during which time i have taught a variety of clients on their own horses, continued to do some teaching at Chessington Equestrian Centre and started at the Cavalery Barracks in Knightsbridge For "The Riding Club of London" some time ago.
