Aberdeen, in the glorious Hunter Valley
My journey to elite level eventing has been via the Scenic Route, and along the way I gained a host of little gems that I would like to share with you!
Interests: Psychoanalysis and any form of mental dissection, thinking about small things way too hard, inspiring people to 'just keep trying!!', laughing at my own absurdity, embarrassing my husband with glowing compliments in public, turning a lesson into a therapy session
