Profile of Susan Damerell
Susan has been interested in horses since she was 12. She bought her first horse when she was 17 and living in England, and her first love was hunting. She spent a few years working in a yard turning out horses for hunting and training to take the British Horse Society Assistant Instructors (BHSAI) exam.In her early 20’s she bought a horse which loved to jump, and started a career in Eventing. It was still a hobby as she ran a restaurant full time, doing all the cooking. She had a succession of horses which she evented in Novice classes but when they got too many points for this classes she felt she must sell them to a professional with more time.
About 10 years ago she discovered the Quarter Horse and the art of Western Riding especially ‘REINING’. She bought a paint horse from America and competed in England in as many shows as was possible winning many prizes and buckles. Unfortunately the paint horse had not become very popular in England and the shows were limited so she changed to Quarter Horses. She bought 2 horses from America, put one in foal and rode the other to win the coveted rookie reining prize in England of a 2 week holiday on a ranch in Montana. This was the beginning of a love for the art of western riding and led to many prizes, best in shows etc. riding as an amateur.
The number of horses gradually increased and she went further afield to compete even as far as Kreuth in Germany and also Denmark.
The Ranch in France
Now she has moved to Limousin near to Nexon with her horses and is breeding high quality Quarter and Paint Horses. She is setting up an establishment where she can train her young horses and where like-minded people can come and train as well.
She has now acquired some Hereford cows and youngsters and will be using these for training the young horses in the art of cutting and cattle penning. Pictures of these beautiful docile cows are on the website.
