It is a great time to be involved in the sport, over the two years since launching the Equestrian side, I have been assisting anyone from complete beginners with their first ride to sourcing a top level horse for International competition. I find it incredibly rewarding when someone tells me how amazing their first polo lesson was or their first time riding on a beach! The most fun to date has to be bringing ponies to a children’s garden party in central London and walking them through the front door!
I am incredibly lucky that Quintessentially are supportive of the my riding as well, I have recently purchased a new event horse called Daley, he will be registered next year as owned by Quintessentially and if all goes to plan I would love to invite members to come and watch and learn about the sport at some of the stunning venues throughout the country.
We have started doing this at the top level of equestrian sport, I have been lucky to work with some amazing riders and companies who have given our members the most fantastic days at Royal Ascot, Cheltenham, Hickstead, Gatcombe and many more. This is definitely one of the areas that I enjoy most and I hope that we can do many more in the future, I think it is important that we are continually bringing new supporters to the sport.
My afternoon always includes a tea and a cake, again usually made by the wonderful in house Chef Khalid Dahbi.
