RACHEL STEPHENS BHSI
I started riding at the age of 5 in Cheltenham. I became really hooked on horses and developed a real passion.
I started to help out at weekends at Summerhouse Riding School with all stable duties and in lessons. I studied for my NVQ level 2 and passed aged 16. I moved to Huntley school of Equitaton where I gained my BHS Intermediate exam.
I then moved to Bristol where I became a freelance instructor and groom, and taught for a lot of pony clubs and riding clubs. In 2005 I came 2nd at the Young Instructor of the Year. I also event groomed up to 3* level which I really enjoyed.
I joined AM dressage in 2009, I am now Matt's show groom. I look after some amazing horses and love it more than ever!!
In the future I would like to train my horse Marge to the highest level I can, and to achieve my BHSI.
