I was brought up around horses , started riding at 3 years of age . All through school I attended Pony Club and started competing in eventing as a teenager.
My son and daughter where both riding from a very young age like I was and as a family we competed around New South Wales. In 1994 while competing at Berrima I had a nasty rotational fall that took the life of my beloved TB and put me in hospital for 6 months where I physically had to learn to walk again. Once better I had a short break from horses for awhile and when I came back into it I found my first Standardbred through the SPPHA NSW called Diamond River.
In 2015 we bought our property in Kurrajong and then we established Diamond Park Standardbreds. We have a Show team of 4 horses that we have successfully shown for many Champion and Supreme titles around NSW. I joined the SPPHA NSW committee in 2015 wanting to assist with getting this amazing breed out there and meeting others who share the passion.
I’m excited with where we are heading with the SPPHA NSW , with our current Harness Racing Off The Track Series and our first ever State Titles to be held in Tamworth next year . Looking forward to seeing more of our members at these events .
