Farming is in my blood, having come from a background of numerous generations of Devon farmers that can be traced back to 1700. My father Edward and Mother Myrtle being progressive dairy famers winning the Devon Herd Competition, also running an extensive plant hire and agricultural contracting business.
Horses played a prominent part in my early years, breaking and schooling ponies and later gaining the pony club A test and the British Horse Society Intermeiate Instructors Certificate. I owned and ran the Coombe Park Equestrian Centre teaching many children and adults to ride and organised numerous Cross Country and Show Jumping Competitions.

The Countryside and animals have always played a huge part of my life, having been brought up in the beautiful South Hams in Devon with an array of domestic pets and farm animals.
On leaving school, I studied Veterinary Nursing at Bicton College and worked in a mixed practice until spending a year working at the Dartington Cattle Breeding Centre. On leaving there, I went on to work in another very busy mixed Veterinary Practice in Totnes where I stayed for 15 years progressing to Practice Manager.
I have spent time in retail, owning two shops, one being lingerie, the other Country Clothing.
I now spend all my time on the farm, assisting with the daily running, have responsibility for the paperwork in both the farm business and property business and have a keen interest in showing the Longhorn Cattle. I very much enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and prefer to be hands on, looking forward to lambing starting in March but will probably also look forward to it finishing at the end!.
I have ridden from an early age and currently ride and occasionally compete when time allows. My skewbald mare foaled in 2013 and so I have a youngster waiting in the wings who I will start to ride in the Spring of 2017. He has been a superstar from the word go, totally unfazed by anything and has already been backed in the Spring of 2016.
