Ben is an experienced horseman, having competed to high level in eventing, show jumping, showing and dressage. He now spends his time running his livery yard of 24 horses alongside freelance training, he is also a retained firefighter so Ben has a pretty hectic schedule! He currently competes three horses; Kauto Cyreo, Con Rico and Lady Solaire at BE 90/ 100 level.
When Ben manages to find some spare time in his diary he enjoys an adrenaline rush (as if eventing wasn’t enough!) often found snow boarding, kitesurfing, mountain biking or clay pigeon shooting in his spare time. However when he does need to unwind he can be founds at a local pub or reading one of his favourite Stephen King novels.
Ben’s Top Tip
‘Enjoy what you do- always’
‘It was a very wet raining day at an event, each discipline I rode the sun came out, after boasting as to how I was lucky to stay dry my horse and I both fell in the water combination with me going right in. I did remount and complete however I was soaking wet!!’
