Name the Most Influential Person in your riding career and why:

Special highlight(s) in your riding career:

Competing in the NZ Young Rider Trans-Tasman team in 2012 and winning gold.

What are your ambitions?

To compete at the highest level against the best.

Have you trained or coached any riders who have had success?

Not yet – but it’s a goal.

Special care and management considerations of your horse(s):

Being one step ahead – not letting and nick or cut, or any signs of weight loss, etc. go unattended.

Which Pryde's feeds do you use and why do you like them?

EasiRide: Great all round feed that suits a large majority of my horses and they do really well off it.

EasiSport: Perfect for my sensitive mare who still requires a large amount of energy

ReBuild: Get for conditioning and building up topline

300 Pellet: Super vitamin and mineral supplement when the horses are not requiring a large amount of feed with minerals added – a top up source of minerals

How will Pryde's Sponsorship make a difference to you?

I know I am feeding the best, so I know my horses have the best opportunity to perform – which is essential.
