Jade, from Somerset, after leaving school (as soon as possible!) went to work for Lucy Pinney in a hunting and showjumping yard. She then went to Rycroft School of Equitation where she gained her BHS Stages 1, 2 and 3 and the Preliminary Teaching test, then gaining the BHSAI.
She taught here for 3 years as Chief Instructor and produced her own Friesian dressage horse Marco from Preliminary level to Advanced Medium achieving qualification for the Regionals at all levels.
In the Autumn 2013 she saw an advert for a rider groom position at Catherston which she started in October 2013. She sold Marco and bought Prinzessin, a three year old who she is bringing on for a career in dressage.
