Initially from New Zealand, Grand Prix level dressage rider Shiwon made the move over to the UK in 2013, where she is now based in the beautiful Cotswolds.

Shiwon is renowned for spotting talent in a horse, as she did with her horse of a lifetime Gosh. Now retired, Gosh was an unlikely dressage superstar being only 16hh and by an unregistered thoroughbred stallion, out of a standardbred clydesdale arab mare. However he flourished as Shiwon’s partner, going from novice level to International Grand Prix and Olympic selections. Shiwon and Gosh had their defining moment in 2010 at Equitana Australia where their performance brought the 4500 person audience to their feet.

Gosh has since retired and, coinciding with her relocation to the UK, Shiwon has focused more on her up and coming horse Da Vinci, as well as some exciting young horses who will be turning heads in 2016.
