What do you feed?
What do you require from your horse feed?
Vidori and Wolly require a well-balanced high energy feed like Bio Mare to give them energy for peak performance and to help with weight maintenance. Penny has to be on a low starch feed because she is prone to tying-up and we find Easy Response to be the most suitable feed for her. Bio Mare is also the best feed available for my broodmares and foals as it allows them to grow and mature correctly.
Special care and management considerations of your horse(s):
It is important for my jumpers to have enough energy but without making them too hot headed and hard to deal with.

What are your riding ambitions?
Like everyone in the horse world representing Australia at the Olympics is the Dream but for now I am happy to go wherever my horses take me. Every day I learn something new! Doesn’t matter if you have been in the horse industry 2 days or 20 years there is always something to be learnt. I would like to jump in a world cup by the time I am 30 so I have a bit of time to get there.
Name the most influential person in your riding career:
My Riding Inspiration is Penelope Leprevost of France – Such a well-established rider that is flawless on course no matter the horse she is riding.
Another inspirational person in my life is my mother, Glynis Nunn. Followed her dreams, worked hard and everything paid off when she won the Gold Medal for Heptathlon at the 1984 LA Olympic Games. She has always taught My brother and I to chase our dreams.
Do you have any hobbies/other interests?
I enjoy reading, watching movies and learning about building horseboxes from my Partner Philip Knight (GT Horseboxes) and helping where I can (passing the tools he needs J )
