After begging my parents for years to have riding lessons I started riding weekly at the age of 11 at my local stables.
A year later after riding every week at the stables come rain or shine my grandparents bought me a pony!
Needless to say my family hardly saw me after that!
I used to do all the showjumping circuits and whilst working as a live in girl groom did some hunting.
I stopped riding when I moved to London from Oxford in my early 30s and had my children.
About 20 years later a neighbour of mine said that she was riding at Lee Valley and why didn’t I join her so I did!
I enjoyed all the intermediate classes at Lee Valley and then I discovered Linda L’s advanced lessons!
From meeting Linda I got to join the Riding Club, and if anybody had told me when I first came to London that I would be Riding and Member of a riding club I would’ve found it hard to believe
Best thing I ever did going back to Riding!
