Leanne has been actively involved in horses from a young age and still regularly competes at both local and affiliated level; predominantly in eventing; where she has had successes at novice level, especially with her ex-racing mare.  Most recently with  her homebred 14hand NF/TB (lovingly know as the super midget) pony she has had many successes including 15th at Mitsubishi Motors Cup final 2017. Other successes in with him in 2017 were qualification for BE100 Mitsubishi Motors Cup final 2018, a win at Dauntsey BE100 and her greatest success was winning the ALDON BE100 3DE at the end of the season.

And in the future she will be hoping to be out competing her homered youngsters at eventing too.

Leanne has previously been an active instructor in the area, both privately and for the local pony club. She has had experience with breaking and training youngsters and often re-schools horses. As an ACPAT Physiotherapist part of the treatment process often involves providing a rehabilitation program to enable the animal to recover back to full fitness.
