I own one horse Coffee, he is a 6 year old warmblood by Fidertanz out of a Contango 11 mare. Who is your favourite horse as a kid? Mr Ed I think And now?

Favourite thing about your job: Helping our customers reach their goals by providing them with the best nutritional products and advice.  Hometown: Whittlesea Home at the moment: Garfield (the swamp!)  Favourite childhood horse memory: Not quite a horse, but sneaking down behind my primary school at lunctime to ride Dusty the donkey!  How did you get involved with horses? I always had a love of horses but coming from a non-horsey family it took me until 12 years of age to convince my parents it was a good idea. Then we had move out of the suburbs in order to cater for Maple my pony! Do you have horses now? Yes, 4: Dante- 8 year old Welsh Pony of Cob type who does a bit of HRCAV, dressage, navigation rides and jumping at shadows! Artemis- 4 year old Welsh Cob mare who has just started her saddle career. I have high hopes for this girl in the show ring but with her atitude I think she will be a great allrounder. Misty- 8 year old Friesian Warmblood mare. Technically my husbands horse but I do all the work! Currently on maternity leave. Pagan- 3 month old 7/8 Friesian Warmblood colt. Excels at sunbaking, canter pirouettes, slobbery kisses and basically looking cute. Who is your favourite horse as a kid? Artex from The Neverending Story (yes, I still cry in that movie!)  And now? Artemis (sorry Dante!) What do you like to do in your spare time? Most of my time is spent maintaining our agistment property and looking after the horses that live there. I also love to travel and aim to add a new country to my travels every year. What is your favourite movie? Any murder mystery, thriller or true story. What is your favourite book? Too many to mention! But I do like books by Roald Dahl, Daphne Du Maurier, Jodi Picoult... Something people might be surprised to know about you: On the weekend I can be seen dressed as a fairy or a clown making balloon animals!
