What I do

As a Hartpury graduate, I returned as a Senior Equine Lecturer and Programme Manager. I completed my PhD in rider fitness and the physiological demands eventing places on the rider. With the results from my research I 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 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 University helped me get here

A vast part of my research, which is the scientific base for my EventFit programmes, was completed at Hartpury University. 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.
