I am thrilled to have been offered the opportunity to continue on the Hoofbeat tradition. I’m looking forward to keeping the Paso Robles community involved and up to date in all things Equestrian. I think a little introduction is in order!
In 2008 I relocated to the United States from my home in Sydney, Australia. I briefly spent some time on the east coast, before settling on California’s Central Coast. America has an alluring equestrian culture like none other in the world. That diversity is ever present here on the Central Coast, mixing international level equestrian competition with western shows, prestigious hunter/jumper shows and a vast trail network that spans the stunning coast to rugged mountains. It is the home to world class breeders in all disciplines, aspiring equestrians furthering their education in local colleges and numerous world class trainers and horse enthusiasts. I feel very blessed to be a part of this amazing community.
Horses have always been a huge part of my life, I’ve represented Australia in the sport of Three Day Eventing, competed at International competitions all the way through to the prestigious Adelaide International 4*. I am currently based out of Twin Rivers Ranch in Paso Robles and Templeton Farms, Templeton, training and competing eventing horses throughout the US and the world.
I look forward to showcasing the best of what we have to offer here on the Central Coast in the coming months.
