‘Team Reggie’ consists of my amazing mum, and Reggie’s owner, Sally, who is like a second mum to me. They form the ‘core crew’ who are at every event cheering me on, holding horses, nodding encouragingly on course-walks, and sometimes picking up the pieces.
My sister supports us from afar while she’s at university and blogs about our antics- she’s also very nifty with a camera, and taught my mum how to video me so I can re-watch my rounds and publish them on Youtube for the world to see.
Nini French gave me weekly flat work and jumping lessons last year but has sadly moved away. She was instrumental in showing me how to ride ‘properly’ and gave me the confidence I needed to know when to ask for help. I am now having regular dressage lessons with Kate French and jumping with John Adams on both horses and local event rider Sarah Wales is always on hand for help and advice in between.
