Celia has committed herself to Area 7 & the Riding club movement since a teenager. Celia first joined Harlow R/C and became a committee member, team rider & Area 7 Representative for her club. After moving she joined Stevenage R/C, organising Area ODE events, S/J Qualifiers, Training & social events & Area 7 Rep for her club, while Eventing several horses. From here Celia was voted Area 7 Chairman, some 30 Yrs ago, holding Area meetings & Christmas parties at her house and then at her Shuttleworth Yard. Celia was trainer with Pat Manning for the British team, for the World Championship for Disabled Dressage Riders winning many Gold medals. Celia also proudly trained the Paralympic team that won Team & Individual Gold Medals at the Atlanta Olympics & Paralympics.

Celia has been involved in the Riding Club movement though many changes and brings her vast experience, over many decades, to the Area, both as a rider, an Area 7 Riding Club committee member, International 3 day Event Rider and now as a trainer of Horse & Rider and Director of 2 Companies. Celia is always there for anyone who needs help or advise at any level 24/7 and loves your calls (or emails) to discuss any equestrian related queries. This means good or bad, which Club would suit a member's needs or just another opinion on any equestrian matters.

I have been involved with horses for more years than I care to remember. First as an unpaid groom, then a rider, then an owner, then a mother with daughters who ride and back to unpaid groom! Horses remain a central part of my life, supporting my daughter with her own horses and still being an occasional weekend happy hacker. In my years I have been hunting, leisure rides, XC and all manner of other horsey activities, and am now giving back a little with my role on the Area 7 Cttee as Treasurer. Most of you will no doubt see me out and about at the many Area and BRC events coming up

A member of Houghton & Huntingon Riding Club and until recently an Area Cttee member. Having volunteered for a number of years for local Riding Clubs, Area events, BRC Nationals and also other ridden events such as Houghton Int'l Unaff Dressage Classes, I have now taken a backseat to let other newer members come forwards with their ideas to help progress Riding Clubs going forwards together. I still currently manage the HHRC Dressage Teams, and the Houghton Int'l Unaff Dressage Event, and also manage the updates into the Area 7 Website, so am still involved with the Clubs and events and support where I am able
