Hi, I'm Catherine Friday, and I'm married with a teenage daughter. I work full time, and in the time I have for myself I love to spend it with my horse. I am an enthusiastic amateur rider, and my enthusiasm far outweighs my ability, but I love riding and it's a big part of who I am.
I started riding in my late 20s, on stock horses at my parents-in-law's farm. That was about 15 years ago (or so, no need to be specific). I started getting lessons about 5 year's ago, and have loved the last two here at JurAvon.
I moved to Melbourne from Canberra then and needed to find a great new home for my horse. He and I found a welcoming and fun community at JurAvon. I am now riding my daughter's horse, Ruby, and continue to enjoy the journey under Renee's guidance and the in the company of the rest of the JurAvon mob. I may still be doing Prelim tests in another five year's time, but I reckon I will still be having masses of fun and continuing to learn almost as much from Ruby as from Renee.
Jen is a full time coach and has taken Bart from an unbroken 3 year old to currently competing and training at FEI.
We absolutely love agisting at JurAvon, the facilities are fantastic and the people second to none.
Renee is an amazing coach and mentor and has been crucial in us achieving our goals.
The friendly atmosphere and the help that anyone will give you at any moment is irreplaceable.
