Maddy was taken on her first riding lesson for her sixth birthday and has been having weekly lessons at a BHS Approved Centre ever since. She loves riding and being around horses, and hopes to be able to own horses throughout her life.

Maddy has always wanted to own a horse from a very young age, and her Accredited Professional Coach suggested she trained for her Stage 1 Ride, as it will provide her with skills that cover all aspects of equestrianism, including stable management, riding and coaching.

As Maddy starts her journey on the BHS Professional Rider Pathway, join her for a lesson with her coach at Brampton Stables, where she is working towards her Stage 2 Ride and tells us about her ambitions to ride at the Horse of the Year Show.
