Joined Horse & Rider in 2016
Started riding age 1
Fran’s been riding all her life and was lucky enough to grow up on her mum’s livery yard, which meant she could go out and see her pony in her pyjamas! She was a member of Pony Club and, after leaving school, went on to study at Sparsholt College, where she completed a national diploma in equine management and BSc (Hons) degree in Equine Studies. While there she also competed on the inter-college riding team. Fran worked as a groom, and in retail and equestrian wholesale before getting the job as a Sales Executive at Horse&Rider. She owns Sekonda, a 17hh Irish Draught, who she enjoys dressage with. They’re also thinking about having a go at showing, if Fran can keep Sekonda clean for long enough – he is grey after all! She also shares two Shires, Sammy and Roxy, with her partner and uses them for draught work, riding and driving.
