Stella is a freelance riding instructor, training many riders of all ages and abilities, including some very talented event riders of the future. She competes at Advanced level eventing on her horse Trefeinon Icon who has qualified for the British Championships 2010.
Stella has many wins on a variety of horses with success at Foxhunter BSJA and Medium Level British dressage.
She brings on almost all of her horses from unbroken youngsters, either by breeding them from her mares or buying what she hopes are talented young stock.
In 2010 she has qualified her latest young event horse "Hartpury Top Gun" for the British Young Horse Championships. Top Gun is only 4 years and is a very exciting prospect for the future. Another future talent is John Wayne, he is due to make his eventing debut very soon.
The horses all have very special personalities, for example, Stella's best horse Icon knows he is a superstar thumping his door with his feet until he is fed polos by any visitors to the yard!
