Hi, my name is Rowan Ashley and I am 14 years old. I have been riding since I was 4. My family love horses and my mum and dad both ride, so they bought me a lovely little welsh a called Rosie and put me on her when I was 4. I caught the riding bug and have been riding ever since! 

 

I had a 14.2hh coloured mare called Rose for 2 years. She was brilliant at endurance and we did very well together. She is now my brother’s as I grew out of her. 

 

Last September we bought LadyBug, a 16hh, 9 year old, ISH bay mare. She is just awesome and loves her job! She is a great jumper and I have really started to gel with her. I found her a bit of a machine to start off with and she is very quick, but with regular training, I can now steady her up.

 

Since the lockdown restrictions have started to ease, I have been having regular Dressage & Show Jump lessons. I have also been cross country training and to the gallops. We are out x country training with pony club this Saturday and we have our first endurance ride of the year lined up in a couple of weeks too! I really can’t wait to start show jumping Bugs, so we are looking into some shows we can get out to soon. 

 

Outside of the horses, I enjoy seeing my friends, playing on my Xbox, riding my quad bike and I also do Boxing. I have 2 dogs and I like to walk them with my family too.
