A letter from Sophie Griffith

I started with Brugs at the age of 14. I was in year 10 at school and going through that phase of finding out what was more important in life. Thankfully I found Brugs and I have never looked back.

Brugs has not only trained me to ride to Grand Prix she has also help me develop who I am as a person. I feel all children at that age are a little wishy washy, and that was definitely me.

The yard gave me direction, not only in life generally; but also in who I wanted to be as a person. I learnt true dedication, a willingness to learn and to be open to new ideas. When we get on those horses its not just a case of teaching tricks, we form unbreakable bonds not only with the horses but with the team around us. We learn patience, self control and devotion.
