I’m laura I’m thirty (and a bit) years old. I have been riding since I was 2 years old and spend much of my childhood in Scotland using my pony as a mode of transport to and from school. Honey Bunny lived with us until the ripe old age of 30 and even made a guest appearance at my wedding in 2010.
I was an active member of the wyre forest pony club and represented the club at all levels including the Eventing pony club championships with great success. I have always loved cross country and got the Eventing bug after several seasons hunting both mine and several other people’s horses. I was then helpfully guided by a lovely instructor to give Eventing a go!
I have bought all my horses on from babies and have juggled this around education and now a full time job. In my spare time I loved nothing more than rounding sheep up on our family farm and teaching many pony club riders at rallies, camps and clinics.
My biggest loves are the outdoors and my two faithful mascots and sidekicks Roxy and Frankie sausage dogs.
