Gaucho Derby 2024

A critical care nursing sister in Oxford UK; has been around horses all her life. Grew up on her family’s English dairy farm schooling and preparing young horses for livery clients. Competitive in her younger years (eventing, point2point and team chasing) and now spends much of her time supporting the exploits of her son (a captain of the Queens Royal Hussars, Cavalry Regiment) and her daughter, (who runs an equine livery yard on the home farm and also is a professional rider). Family and work colleagues think she has taken leave of her senses in signing up to tackle this Patagonian adventure, but her motto (“We are always the same age inside”) and her indomitable spirit will see her in good stead.
