Victoria did not begin riding until 11 years of age. Always a keen horse lover, but was never able to twist her parents arm enough to buy a horse.
After completing University and starting work full time gave Victoria the opportunity to finally go and buy her first horse, who was a chestnut Thoroughbred mare and Victoria reflects 'at least she taught me alot'.
Through close friends Victoria became interested in the show horse world, with much admiration of all the beautiful and well presented horses and riders knew that was where she would like to be.
Victoria's current stable star is the Riding Pony gelding Beechwood Caste in Gold, a stunning small Galloway by Kolbeach Holly's Gold out of Wesswoods Starcaste. Campaigning at Royal and National level shows, some recent performance highlights for 'Richie' include:
Victoria is supported by one of the most successful show stables in the country in David Quayle and Margot Haynes and their tutelage really shines in this horse and rider combination.
Victoria has a new addition in Kolbeach Holly's Ruby, a beautiful show hunter Galloway in her first year of showing and has already qualified for this years Adelaide Royal Show.
Victoria's likes the Kwik Out Stirrups and of course items from the E.A.Mattes range.
