About Sally

Born in Inverness, Sally started riding aged 7 on a Shetland pony from which she was off more than on as he bucked! She was given her first pony by her grandfather and showed him reasonably successfully. He was followed by a young Anglo Arab horse who she showed in Hack classes. Sally has bred several horses by Maple Courier out of her daughter’s eventer mare. These took her into the dressage world and she trained and rode Maple Matilda up to FEI Level.
