Welcome to Pleasant View Equestrian

As a little girl I lived across the road from the Henderson Valley Pony Club in West Auckland. I watched the beautiful people ride to Pony Club on Sundays dressed in their red tank tops, white jodhpurs and shiny black boots. How I envied them: my parents couldn’t afford to buy me a pony, so I learnt to ride on the back of a couch, and took care of my horse obsession by feeding carrots and brushing a big black horse named Brigadoon who grazed in a paddock close by.

When I moved to Cambridge I got my first horse, a 4yr old TB mare straight off the track. I had Dime for 20 years and competed at low level dressage competitions. She was a tart, but I loved her despite her antics, including an unscheduled gallop down Racecourse Rd nearly sending me into cardiac arrest. After she broke her hip at age 24 I had to say goodbye and bury my best friend.


Some might say in my grief I lost my mind and bought my dream horse, a big dapple grey called Napoleon. I’m really good at listening to advice, so because Napoleon needs a friend, he now has 18 of them in all shapes and sizes- many of whom form part of our amazing Hitch a Ride team.


​After 21 years, I’m almost considered a Cambridge local.


My most important job is as Mummy to my son Daniel who is 14. Daniel has Spina Bifida and developmental delays, and he is the brightest, chattiest, most amazing guy I know. Daniel has benefitted hugely from the amazing support of two local charities, Cambridge RDA and Conductive Education Waikato.


With immense gratitude, every booking you make also supports these two local charities, that are so important to our family, and many other families.

Giving Back

I started by aiming to donate $10,000 to Cambridge RDA and Conductive Education Waikato.... and thanks to all of the wonderful people who come and play in my backyard we have well and truly smashed that out of the park! Thank you to all you amazing people for supporting us.
(We have also supported the cyclone relief and Conductive Education Taranaki.)
