Horses have always been a part of Tessa’s life at home whether event horses or racehorses, her mum evented and her dad is heavily involved in the thoroughbred industry.
Tessa started eventing on a just broken 6-year-old Connemara pony called Creemully Melody, who has now gone on to compete at two European Championships.
Once tessa’s time in ponies came to an end my grand uncle Malcolm MacNaughton offered Tessa the incredible opportunity of the ride on Catsky.
Tessa has had many good placings with Catsky including: 3rd place finish at Tattersalls International and getting selected for the Young Rider European Championships in Millstreet.
