Sheena Ross came up through the Pony Club system, and evented to intermediate level. However, when she went to university she gave up riding and it wasn’t until she was 35 that she came back into the sport. She discovered the thrill of jumping was no longer there and her ‘secret’ passion for dressage came to the fore.


As a teen she had worked for the late Christian Theiss, an East German dressage rider, who let Ross ride a school master horse and inspired her hugely. She has since taken one horse to Grand Prix level, rode for New Zealand at the FEI World Challenge and now owns Sterling Warmbloods Stud with her husband Dermot.


Her love of training horses from scratch and bringing through the grades has surprised even herself.
