Brittany is a station hand, station mum and a station wife that is always trying to better her horsemanship and every horse that she gets to throw a leg over.
She comes from a long line of Thoroughbred fans, with most of her family involved in the racing or competing, training and rehabilitation of these athletes. Brittany was exposed to Thoroughbreds in her younger years, competing at Pony Club and Show Jumping on her OTTBs.
She then discovered her passion for the art of horsemanship and apprenticed under Phil Rodey before travelling and working on ranches in Canada. Upon returning to Australia, her and her husband have been working full time on stations, always using horses to complete station work.
She believes that horses are the best way to work cattle effectively and quietly and in turn, horses blossom when they have a job to do and acquire very useful skills and mental resilience as a result. She’s lucky to have an amazing husband that allows her saddle time in between raising two toddlers.
She feels humbled and honoured to be riding alongside some of the most capable horsewomen in the country and hopes to do the Thoroughbred breed proud in this opportunity to showcase their skill, grit, adaptability and endurance- as well as her own.”
