Lois - Travel Consultant
I reckon I have been horse obsessed since birth. After finally having my first riding lesson when I was five, I insisted on telling everyone that I would be the first lady jockey to win the Grand National. I helped out at my local riding school from aged twelve, riding my loan pony whenever I had time. On leaving home, I attended the foundation course at the British Racing School in Newmarket. I then went on to work for a well-established race yard in Gloucestershire for two years, where I fell in love with my trusty steed - I was lucky enough to have him once he retired from racing. After a two and half year stint at an agri-feed company, I wanted to get back to horses without the task of battling the British weather!
I joined In The Saddle at the end of 2017 and so far I've ridden at Los Alamos in Spain, where I enjoyed a fantastic week of sunshine and riding!
