Mavis Spencer

Mavis Spencer is not only the daughter of actress Alfre Woodard, Miss Golden Globe in 2010 but more importantly renown rider! Her experience as a groom and her 4 years of training in Kent Farrington's farm led her to the brilliant results she have now. She always kept this will to reach the high-level, in parallel of her studies at Columbia University in the City of New York, or even of her modeling career. Based in Wellington, she parts her time between competition, horse trade, and lessons she gives to her students.

Hi Cammie,

In Europe it is much easier to produce and bring along young horses especially because there are a lot of training and one day shows for them to go to. In general it is a lot more expensive to keep horses and to manage and run shows so it seems natural that the fees are higher...

Hi Molly,

I haven't found it has helped me or made life more difficult to be honest.

When my mom comes to shows she's 'Mavis' mother' which she loves! I like to think I've made a name for myself through my hard work!

Mavis.

Hi Tessy,

Quite a few!! It's hard to keep track to be honest as we sell a lot from other people that we don't have in our stable as well.

Hi Sofia,

I don't think so! Neither of my parents were involved with horses when I started riding. I just had the bug so to speak!

Mavis.

Hi Alicia!

I have never felt like I've been discriminated or had a handicap by being biracial and having spent a lot of time in Europe I didn't feel like it was any different there... horses are color blind so to speak and (from my experience in the sport) people in this sport are any different.

Hi Gabby!

I really love the range from Horseware!! I have a regular sheet, a back on track, a liner with a neck piece that is 200g and a 400g heavy blanket along with Rambo fleeces for layering! They have a lot of options!

Hi Tessy,

I like to school my horses with a 9ft rail on the front and back of a vertical and an oxer to get them thinking in using their bodies.

I recently did an article with practical horsemen about it!

Hi Ashley,

I never had a big interest in acting. Horses were always my priority!

But my dad is hugely talented and I have so much admiration and respect for the work he does!

Mavis.

Hi Lily,

There are a lot of riders I have learned by watching over the years but Mandy Porter and Eric Navet are incredible to watch and learn from being out on the west coast right now!

Mavis.

Hi Charlotte,

Horses have always been my priority but I did take acting classes in high school and college because I found it very interesting and stimulating!
