'Aristede' 'Somerset Flemington'
I have just sold my Grand Prix horse 'Aristede' a 13 yo and am now focussing on 'Somerset Flemington' a 4 yo both Australian Bred Warmblood.
I bought 'Aristede' as a breaker and we came through the levels to Grand Prix. He won numerous championships including national and CDI Grand Prix championships and has been awarded QLD FEI Horse of the Year in 2016, 2017 & 2018.
'Somerset Flemington' is just at the start of his journey but we work each day to be a future Grand Prix horse.
During the day I work as a child psychologist, specialising in supporting families with Autism.
