I first fell in love with Samshield because of how beautiful they are! I LOVE bling and I just remember instantly falling for the crystal medley.

The fit is perfect for me, they are so comfortable and never get too hot which is great when we compete in the summer, especially in the hot climates. But I think the best, and most important thing about Samshield is how safe they are, I know they're rigorously tested and exeed the safety standards.

Being a Para rider (and a new mum!) and riding without stirrups all the time, this is extremely important for me. The bonus is they're totally customisable and are as unique as we are as riders!

A horse that makes you dream

My own Lottie (Keystone Dawn Chorus)

Your first horse / the one that marked you the most

JP was my horse of a lifetime, he made my dream of winning gold at a Paralympics come true, 5 times and had a heart of gold to match.

Most memorable performance

My freestyle at London 2012. I love freestyle and dancing to a home crowd was the most incredible feeling. To win a gold and get the paralympic record was the cherry on top.

Favorite arena

London 2012 was my favourite arena, it was temporary but the backdrop was unreal. A permanent one though, Doha, Al Shaqab is incredible!

Your habit before entering the arena

My habit is my mum has to pat me on the leg and say "good luck, have fun & enjoy"
