Pamela Smith

I started riding at the age of 13 & got my first horse a Thoroughbred ex Show hunter at 16 & escorted rides from the stables to earn my horses keep. I passed my Pony Club B test at the age of 16 on a borrowed pony.

I worked for National Westminster Bank International Division in Leeds starting in the Foreign Exchange Department & then in the Import/Export Division I had a break from horses when I bought my first house and couldn’t afford both, however I returned to horse ownership over 20 years ago.

I have currently got 2 ponies; Ben who is 27 who I have owned for 17 years & now mainly hacks with my husband although was a super all rounder & Murray who is 20 who mainly hacks however we enjoy competing at Dressage to music & he loves jumping.
