Ruth started horse riding at the age of 5 and learnt to ride at Strathorn. Ruth studied at NESCol where she gained a NC in Animal Care. She is a full time member of the staff at Strathorn, and recently passed her riding exam to achieve her status as a Stage 2 Foundation Rider. Ruth’s qualifications are:

  • BHS Level 1 Complete Horsemanship

  • Stage 2 Ride & Lunge

  • SVQ Level 2

Ruth loves being part of the Strathorn team.  She currently owns Ally a 10 year old Welsh section D chestnut gelding which she loves working with and competes regularly in Dressage, Show Jumping and recently started competing in One Day Events. Her aim is now to start competing in more BS events and work towards doing Wee Burgie.

Ruth’s favorite part of working at Stathorn is having the privilege to show the Clydesdale and being a part of the Musical Drill Ride.

The best thing about horse riding is the feeling of freedom.
