My name is Fiona Guthrie and I am currently the stable rider/instructor for Wendy Schaeffer at Sunburst Equestrian. I am available for dressage, showjumping and cross country lessons both on Sunbursts Hahndorf property which includes a training x country course with banks/ditches and water but also at peoples private residence and at courses such as Grand Cru/Kirkaldy.
I am also available for schooling of horses at either sunburst or your own property. We also have school horses available.
For those of you who dont really know me, I will give you a short run down.
I am 32 years of age and have been riding since I was 2. I started eventing at 12 on a horse called Bejan who had issues leaving the start box on cross country! I took him from pony club grade 3 right through to our first 2 star when I was 16, I then went on to a string of off the track/unschooled horses which I took through the grades some of which include:
Get The Dollars - 3 star
Touche - 2 star
Renmark - 2 Star
The Kings Dollar - 1 star
The Huntsman - 1 star
ESB Irish elegance - pre nov
Moonlight Eclipse - prelim (dec)
and more recently Crockadoo and Belle Amour both 2 and 1 star. I am also currently competing Koyuna Sunshine and Sunbright along with preparing Wendys four star horse Sunshowers and her 2 2star horses Sunlover and Smokin Sun for Adelaide Horse Trials in her absence.
I am currently listed on the State Eventing Squad and have in previous years been the SA young event rider of the year! I have also competed up to Advanced level dressage and B grade showjumping and did a stint as a jumps jockey (many lighter kgs ago)!!
My specialty is young horses off the track and difficult horses, I enjoy the challenge of getting them going and like the horses listed above they were all off the track or had a difficult past. I have had many horses who dont make the best eventers but have gone on to be fantastic in other disciplines.
I am available 7 days a week and can be contacted on 045145419 or email@example.com
