Now 27, Melissa began riding at the age of 2 on her aunts pony "Rusty." She was bitten by the horse bug and has been riding ever since. Having attended Queen Mary's School she began to ride seriously from the age of 12 competing at local shows and events, her passion for eventing took hold and at the age of 15 she completed her 1st affiliated Pre-Novice event on her 1st horse Sir Montague achieving a double clear. Her 2nd horse Gemsbrook was added to the team and she achieved many placings at this level and novice.
When Mel graduated from QM she decided that she wanted to pursue a professional equestrian career and worked in a local eventing yard whilst establishing herself as a freelance instructor. In 2006 she decided to go it alone and has run her own yard, moving it over onto her fathers farm in Spring 2009.
2008/09 saw some changes in her career and she moved into pure dressage. Her commitment to the horses, their care, training and competition is second to none, her results prove that her system works with many wins in both disciplines.
