She grew up through the ranks of Pony Club competing in sporting, showjumping and dressage and successfully representing Pony Club at State level in all those fields. She started the foundation of her Stud when she was only 17 and has been breeding Andalusian horses ever since. She has been heavily involved in showing in hand and performance, both under saddle and more recently harness. She has competed successfully in EFA Dressage at State and National Championships to Intermediate II.

She is a regular Judge and Steward at any show or discipline which needs help and has organised breed shows for State and National Championships. She has run the Andalusian stand at the Horse Breeds Expo at Brisbane Royal Show for more than 12yrs.
