Emma has been living around a passion for animals all her life and was inspired at a young age when her father Steve had race horses in training and watched their success.
As soon as she was old enough she began following her cousins who were based at a local riding school and helping wherever possible, which led to Emma eventually persuading her father to take her to Attridge’s Equestrian Centre to learn to ride.
Here Emma learnt the ropes and would be found mucking out or grooming a horse in every ounce of her spare time.
This lead to a quick progression and riding as an affiliated Junior rider within 2 years riding numerous ponies from young to quirky for the yard owner to sell on.
Emma got her first pony at 14years old and landed a pony called Legan.
Legan had been mistreated somewhat and Emma created a bond with this pony which shone through to a lot of people that she had the patience the animals needed. She went on to take this pony to Pony of the Year show on numerous occasions and got placed in the top ten at every event despite peoples doubts and expectations.
Emma supported the carriage driving world, producing a young Hackney horse for competition classes, grooming for individuals and team drivers at world championships and helping drivers new to the sport learn the ropes.
Currently Emma has two young horses and is hoping to compete in the UK and Europe and fulfil her competition dreams at amateur level.
This came after loosing her best show jumping horse Ollie in which inspired Emma to become a physiotherapist.
Emma’s long term goals are to help as many people and their horses as possible, promote physiotherapy and maintenance treatments of horses in parts of Europe that its not currently understood in and ensure as many people can benefit from what she can offer.
