Born 27th October 1980 I was brought up surrounded by a family that loved horses. My father Brian was not a Trainer but he always had a horse in training, while at home he loved to breed with his own mares to try and find that big race winner we are all looking for. I was very lucky to have a pony from my first memories, it was in my blood.
