Hi! I’m Cathryn Herbert also known as Catie. Thanks for stopping by.

I am an event rider. Working and living at the Ryans in Newcastle, Australia since April 2016. Its the kind of place where you go to live your dream, that is if you dream is to become an Olympic athlete in the Equestrian disciplines. We live horses day in day out and just when you think you might be over them something great happens and you remember exactly why you are there. 

In a previous life I studied to be an Engineer and even managed to graduate with a Double Degree in Chemical Engineering and Extractive Metallurgy. After 5 years at Uni and work experience on some mines I decided I wasn’t quite ready for FIFO life and didn’t want to always wonder what would have happened if i had of had a proper go at horses.

Its almost a year in and I am happier than I have ever been and am feeling inspired and am certainly not going anywhere for awhile. I am excited to share my upcoming journey and my quest to make an Olympic team and then win a Gold Medal.

Here is a link to what Heath Ryan has to say about me after a year of working at Ryans
