Danielle is an event rider who is based near Cricklade in Wiltshire. She is 29 years old and went to Prior Park Prep school followed by Cheltenham Ladies College, to which she was awarded a Sports scholarship and achieved impressive grades academically.
Since leaving school Danielle has built her yard, gaining knowledge and experience that has meant she now has a superb string of horses. She has contested Badminton Horse Trials twice, as well as Pau 5* in France. A very impressive achievement, this is the top level of Eventing worldwide. Danielle has also achieved her UKCC level 3 coaching qualification. She is very passionate about the sport and helping other riders achieve their optimum performance.
Danielle comes from a sporting family and as a child spent many hours hunting with her Grandfather, the hunting field was a perfect place to learn the elements of cross country riding. At the age of 3 she joined the VWH Pony Club which brought many hours of fun, competition and team work. Danielle learnt all her fundamental basics from the inspirational Jane Kidd during this time
