I was educated at boarding school in England, then joined the British army where I served for 12 years. As a Royal Engineer, I served in Oman, the Falkland Islands, and Germany. While serving in the British Army, I was introduced to horses and learned to ride them. The majority of my riding experience, however, comes from 10 years of competition in the sport of Modern Pentathlon. Show jumping is just one of the five events in the sport. I participated in over 50 international competitions across East and West Europe, and competed in the United States, representing Great Britain, culminating in the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. I took a sabbatical from horses for 25 years. During that time, I emigrated to Utah, married, and had a family.
I recently rejoined the horse tribe with Redmond, entering the Equine business two years ago. It has been a great opportunity for me to work with, and fall in love with, horses again. I bought a young Arabian and thought it would be interesting to try endurance events. Endurance riding has been a lot of fun for me and I have discovered a latent passion. Growing and learning with my Arabian about nutrition, training, and tack equipment has been a great experience. I feel very fortunate to work in a great company doing what I love to do with like-minded horse owners.
