Hello Abby,

To succeed a rider really needs money to buy good horses and make a living of it. You really have to want it and and provide themselves with the means of achieving these. The team is also essential (owners, groom, …).
In my case, I don’t win enough competition to make a living of it. I am lucky that my owner wants to keep Venezia but financially it is really difficult to stay in the top level.
