The development of their spa and rehabilitation facilities means that TT Sports Horses will soon be offering even more services to support both horse and rider.
What do you like to do away from the horses?
I like to spend time with my family, making memories. I also love going to the cinema, meals out and a very rare spa day with the girls to relax.
How did you come across Horse Search? What made you choose it?
Instagram – I loved Horse Search because they also use their social media platform to promote your ads which means they get seen by a wider audience and also a lot more cost effective than other sites.
What made you want to be a BA?
I love working with companies that are passionate and believe in working together to help one another enhance their business platforms. I believe strongly that we need a really user friendly, affordable way to market businesses in one place.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
Loads but here are a few….
This is my fave from my Mum
“You are not that important for anyone to care” When I used to worry about who was watching me when I was younger.
“Each Horse is an individual, there is no one method fits all. Learn to adapt, listen and be better.”
“Give In, Give up or Give it all you got”
“Be organised to be less stressed – old saying of fail to prepare prepare to fail” I am a massive believer in being over prepared and organised from having whiteboards on the lorry to having everything loaded- spare tacks, bits, you name it I have it, I don’t like not knowing what’s going on.
How do you balance work/horses with social life etc.
This is something I actually struggle with as I am kind of all or nothing, I have had to learn to trust my team and give them responsibility so I can take a break and be with my family. Having people you can rely on is the key to being able to manage a large team of horses and take time to switch off. I give myself a day off every Monday and I also make sure I have social media messages set to automatic respond after a certain time, I used to panic about replying straight away but I have learnt that I need to concentrate on what I am doing and schedule better.
