To ride at the highest level of Dressage has always been a goal of mine, trying to perfect it will be an ongoing goal.
My riding started at a young age and I have always enjoyed the challenge of Dressage.
As a young rider I had many successes with my Crown Law thoroughbred Kooleena Grand Jury, up to and including Prix St George level. He was my stepping stone towards Grand Prix.
I purchased my current horse APH FAUST 5 years ago from Belcam Stud where he was doing as little as possible and enjoying it! I never knew he would be as successful and as talented as what he is. We have formed a close bond, he is my best friend and together we have climbed the ranks through to Grand Prix Level.
We have won many EFA and FEI Championships, qualified and placed each year at a State and National Level some of our most memorable times have been -
5th Overall Advanced Cup Sydney CDI 2004
3rd Advanced Freestyle Sydney CDI 2004
FEI Reserve Champion Canberra Classic 2005
FEI Champion YOUNG DRESSAGE 2005
FEI Champion CENTRAL COAST DRESSAGE 2006
2nd Grand Prix National VICTORIAN STATE CHAMPS 2007
FEI Champion Goulburn Dressage 2007
I also had the privilege to represent Australia this year overseas in a CDI competition, where I gained a wealth of experience.
Training Faust myself I believe was an achievement for me, we have had our hard times, but there has been many rewarding times. From here we can only climb higher, and together with the added support of Rebecca and her products which keep Faustie working to his fullest potential, we will continue to compete at the highest level looking and feeling marvellous.
September 2015 Update
2015 is in full swing here at Aarity Park. We have welcomed Milton a 7yr old gelding by AEA Metallic to the team, and are excited for the future with this beautiful boy. He reminds us all of APH Faust, and we hope he follows in his foot steps up to Grand Prix. Faust has been retired & at 23 yrs of age he is fit, sound and happy and enjoys grazing and eating in the sun each day!! Avarnti has returned to work after taking a "gap" year, and he is eager to work and very happy. The competition area isnt too far off with our sights set on Medium level. I have just returned from a training holiday in Holland with Annemieke Vincourt where I refined my dressage skills, and am feeling inspired and excited about the future with my beautiful horses!!
