“You have a connection with horses – grooms who work with the animal have a connection when they’re handling them and I have a connection when I’m training with them. So I can feel a trust with my horses – I can feel down the rein if they’re feeling stiff, or if they’re expressive and wanting to show off.”

” It’s a team sport and you need to have a great affinity with your horses. I feel I have that and long may it continue to be that way.”
