BIOGRAPHY:

  • She was brought up in a rural farm community in New Zealand.
  • Spent most of her time outdoors, riding motorbikes and helping to raise the farm's animals.
  • At age six, she discovered her passion for horses and convinced her parents to let her go to riding school.
  • This was the jumping-off point for her numerous horse-related hobbies, including showing, show jumping, and even breeding.
  • When she wasn't riding, she was working in the stables and learning everything she could about different horses.
  • For a while, she tried her hand at more "conventional" jobs-she drove commercial trucks, she sold real estate.
  • But she knew that the most fulfilling moments in her life came when she was working with horses.
  • She started Starlight Farm, where she breeds horses for clients and teaches riding lessons.
