I spent my childhood riding, first with ponies then horses and competed in many events with the Pony Club and BSJA.   After a 30yr break, I took up riding again in my late forties and with the help and support given by the club, my confidence grew and I have enjoyed attending camps and competing again. I felt now was an ideal time for me to invest something back into the club and I look forward to meeting you all in the year ahead.

I grew up riding show ponies until my late teens. Kept my eye in but didn’t ride much until the kids ponies were big enough to get on!  I ended up exercising, schooling & generally doing all the dirty work! The boys enjoyed many wonderful years in Pony Club and competing supported by a host of volunteer helpers! The boys (not kids any more!) stopped riding but I carried on hacking and having fun at Riding Club.  Joining the Committee is for me an opportunity to give back a little for all the years people put in huge amounts of time and effort running Pony Club and the hundreds of un-affiliated events we attended.  I’m often helping out at events run by Mendip Plains Equestrian so hope to see some BMRC members out there having a go!

Having ridden as a teenager and dreamed of owning my own pony, I came back to riding as an adult and finally in my forties I realised my childhood dream and became the proud owner of my first horse!
Whilst my love and passion was still very much there I soon realised that my ability was a little rusty. So, I joined a riding club; the support and camaraderie helped me achieve things I never thought possible as an adult. And, before I knew it I was out competing mostly dressage or showing and generally ‘having a go’ at all disciplines . Now am now the very proud owner of 4 beautiful coloured horses
As the newest committee member of BMRC I am really excited to be part of a committee that want to help others realise their childhood dreams and enjoy our adult “pony time” like we were children again.
