As a member of the Romney Marsh Pony Club she contested the Pony Club championships on six occasions finishing second in 2008 and winning the Urky Newton bursary for the best cross-country round and the horsemanship award for showjumping. In 2004 she represented the South East at the junior regional novice championships and the following year was short-listed for the British Junior team.

In 2009 she gained the ride on the four-star horse Master Monarch with who she gained experience in international events and did her first three-star and in 2010 with Master Monarch won the prize for the highest placed rider U25 in the British Open at Gatcombe and made her four-star debut at Burghley. That year she was also selected to represent GB at the University Championships in Korea winning team silver.
