Diane Humm - Kilmore, VIC
I have been riding all my life, and spent most of my childhood chasing sheep and cows, mostly bareback, on my pony in rural New Zealand. Opening gates was for the faint hearted, but my sister and I would jump gates and fences without a second thought.
I bred my warmblood mare, Rosabaya DDS and I’m so proud of how she has turned out. After some hiccups along the way (being an opinionated chestnut mare) she is now competing Medium level and training towards Advanced/PSG at home. I support my horse habit by working full time and so we compete in both Open and AOR competitions.
I’m incredibly grateful for the support from Black Horse Clothing over the years. I can be found wearing Black Horse just about every day - every outfit is so comfortable, functional and good looking, it’s an obvious choice.
My favourite Black Horse Clothing item.. All of them! But loving the detailing of the Bailey Tab Pocket Breeches.
- The first time I ever rode a horse was when…
I think I was 4 and I used to ask Dad for a ride on the station horses when he had finished mustering. He eventually arrived home one day with half a Shetland pony stud including my first pony Jean!
- Other occupation or study outside of riding?
Full time Compliance Manager, part time cattle farmer.
- If I never became a horse rider, I would probably…
Go mad! Horse time is also the time to be centered and lose the stress of work.
- The biggest achievement of my career so far is…
Training my now semi retired mare Tiffany to from breaking in to small tour.
- A fun fact about me is that…
I play rap music in the car on the way to a comp calms my nerves, think Eminem - Slim Shady style – eek.
