People from all backgrounds can be horse lovers; there isn’t one set formula that turns you horse crazy (If there were I’m sure that there would be a lot of parents steering well clear of this expensive path!).

Take myself, for example, I work in the Tech industry but to meet me at the office you probably wouldn’t guess that I’m also a keen All Around Rider!

I started wondering recently, what interesting and varied careers my fellow riders have that I’d never guess? And maybe never ask once we got on to the subject of horses.

I chatted with some riders here at Sun Circuit to find out what they do away from their horsey life.
