What I do

As a Hartpury graduate I returned as an equine lecturer and now that I live in Canada I am an associate lecturer. I am also completing my PhD into rider fitness and the physiological demands eventing places on the rider. With the results from my research I have developed ‘EventFit’, a 30 day, 40 exercise challenge that doesn’t require any equipment and is available worldwide with an online forum for questions, support and encouragement. I have also developed two six week training programmes for dressage and event riders as well as a more advanced 12 week programme. Alongside this I provide an online bespoke programme for riders.

How Hartpury helped me get here

A vast part of my research, which is the scientific base for my EventFit programmes, was completed at Hartpury. Being surrounded and supported by like-minded individuals really pushed my research and helped me to explore an area that has very little scientific background.
