Olympics 2012

Angie was educated at The Dragon Prep School and Headington Girls School Oxford where she excelled at sports and became the athletics and hockey Captain.  She left school after her A Levels to work with horses full time. 

Angie started riding aged 8 at a riding stables near Oxford. She shortly became a member of the Bicester and Wadden Pony Club.  

Angie progressed on to 13.2,s and joined The British Showjumping Association where she won many classes and qualified for Horse Of The Year Show at Wembley in the 13.2 class and the Foxhunter final where she was placed 5th. 

14.2 ponies followed, qualifying and being placed in Newcomers, Foxhunter and The JA Christy Beauford Finals at HOYS and the JC championships and JA Paul Fabrications Finals at Hickstead.  Angie also competed Internationally and was a member of the Junior Nations Cup Team in Donaueschingen, Germany and Gold Medal Home Pony International Team.

Angie moved on to Horses which she brought on from Novices.  She went for regular lessons with James Fisher who gave her immense confidence in the transition period from ponies to horses. She qualified for The Young Showjumper Award at Olympia and was placed 3rd in The Young Riders Championships at HOYS.  She was a member of The Gold Medal winning English Team in The Home Internationals and was also picked for The British Young Riders Training Squad.  

Angie went from strength to strength being placed in Major Competitions and acquiring lots of experience. Angie started producing horses through the Young Horse Classes where she was selected to compete in The World Young Horse Championships at Zangersheide, Belgium where she had a successful show in the 6 year old section.  She was also placed 5th in Young Riders Final at The Royal International at Hickstead.  She also had a lot of success competing Internationally in France and Belgium. Angie went and worked and trained at The Hendrix's yard in Holland for a couple of months where she was involved in the running of a top professional yard.


Later

Marfurlong farm

Angie started teaching at The North Cotswold Hunt Pony Club and soon realised her passion for teaching.  Through word of mouth and recommendation she soon became a very highly respected trainer of all levels and abilities.  While building up her business at home Angie bought some foals and youngstock (all mares) with good showjumping bloodlines and put them in foal as 2 year/3 year olds to top class showjumping Stallions with the future in mind.   

These youngsters soon grew up and Angie started competing them on the National Circuit in Age Classes.  Some of these horses she kept to compete with but most of them were sold to restock. Angie started going for training with Tim Stockdale who helped her in producing her young horses and polish her flatwork and showjumping skills.   

OKSANA W

One of the horses Angie kept was Oksana W (who was purchased as a foal) who she achieved great success on in Area and International Trials, Grand Prix, six bars, Puissances and qualified and competed in The Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Hickstead for five years running.  'Zana' has now retired and she is in foal to world class showjumping stallion 'Peppermill'... again with the future in mind!  Angie also did an embryo transfer with Zana to Marcolas G which produced a stunning filly which is now 3 years of age. Angie also put the filly in foal to Balou De Ruet which is due in June 2013.  

HOYS

Angie has qualified for Hoys for the last five years running with Whisper Magic (which has since been sold to Qatar),  Oksana WZomeroosWavanta,  and  Calrina WBF in a number of classes and with some good placements on Zomeroos and Oksana W.   Zomeroos also won the National 5 year old Championships at The Scope Festival At Stafford and was 2nd the following year in the equivalent 6 year old Championships.  She was purchased as an unbroken 3 year old. 


Angie is now a member of the Evolution squad and has regular training with John Leddingham which is invaluable.
