Eventers are brave, resilient, smart, strong minded, hard working, confident, goal-oriented, tough as nails, and ‘MacGyver-like’ problem solvers. So are entrepreneurs. So, it’s not surprising I took the path that has led me here.
If there is one type of horse that has stood the test of time in the eventing community, it is the off-the-track Thoroughbred. While breeds such as the Irish Sport Horse and Warmblood types have grown in prominence, OTTBs still seem to outnumber them, and many riders at the upper echelons of the sport agree there is no horse better than a promising OTTB.
As a rider and coach, I am striving each day to be better at my craft than I was the day before. In that quest, I spend a lot of time reading about and studying people who have achieved success in their chosen fields and the many theories behind achieving success.
