I am a horse-riding, football-loving journalist from Kent. I was diagnosed with coeliac disease four years ago and, after settling to a new diet, got bogged down in eating the same old thing, day after day (it was all stuff I liked but, honestly, there’s only so often you can eat the same three meals!)

Then I realised just how much else was out there…

I work hard and spend a lot of time looking after and riding Dave (my horse!) I love vegetables, fruit and chocolate (not necessarily in that order) and like to imagine I cook with them in creative ways, although my friends would probably substitute the word “weird” for “creative” in the above sentence…

This is Dave.

He can be a bit hysterical at times (!) but he’s brilliant, bless him. This is us at Towerlands last April. At least one of us is photogenic, even if it’s not me!

  5. I LOVE Towerlands!! It feels so fancy there, but I think they’ve shut it down now 😦 at least for competing, which sucks!

    • I know, it was brilliant! I loved it and Dave was such a star, bless him… I was gutted to hear they were closing; couldn’t have gone this year anyway but was so looking forward to next year’s Internations 😦

  6. I love that your horse’s name is Dave. So simple and so awesome! 🙂

  18. Wow, Dave is sooooo handsome and majestic looking!! It must be so fun to interact and ride a horse all the time. I’ve gone riding once (think, going on the dirt trail for a while while following a leader, and not being able to gallop), and it was fun. But your deal looks way better 😛
