I first met Catherine when she arrived as an instructor at our local riding school where my daughter, Rose, was riding. Rose at first was not welcoming to Catherine as a new instructor, but Catherine with her infectious love and knowledge for everything to do with equestrianism soon changed that. Rose’s eagerness to learn grew and grew, and Catherine could see this.

I have watched Catherine at work. Her ability to communicate her instruction between adults, teenagers and young children is admirable. Catherine’s method of instruction is engaging, safe and fun, and the results are obvious from lesson to lesson.

One thing you will notice about Catherine, she never has a bad day, and if she does you’d never know! Rose’s progression with Catherine was obvious, and Rose, Catherine and I were so proud when Rose went to her 1st Hunter trials – and won.

When Catherine left the school, to say there were tears would be an understatement. But we knew Catherine was going on to bigger and better things. I know there is a certain group of teenagers now that Catherine started to teach when they were in primary school, now nearly ending their school years, yet they still turn to Catherine for support, and she is always there for them – thank you Catherine.

Catherine has continued to be of great support to Rose, and on hearing of Catherine’s latest venture we are thrilled for her, and wish her all the best.

It's a sad #throwbackthursday today.. unfortunately our little cat, Mary Kate, was hit by a car last week and didn't survive 😣 For such a small and unassuming little pet her absence is immense in our house. Her best buddy Chena, who came to me to tell me something was wrong that evening, misses her most. Animals are the best 💕
