Rachel Watts is the head groom for Shane Rose Eventing and has travelled horses to and from multiple Olympic Games and World Equestrian Games – even once alongside Amanda Ross and her horse Koko Popping Candy (Zarzy).
From an early age, Rachel knew she wanted to spend time with horses but not necessarily as a rider. Studying at Australia's only independent agricultural and equine business management college, Marcus Oldham Rachel came to the industry with a firm background in animal management. Now having worked with multiple international eventers both in England and Australia, regularly taking 20+ horses to an event, and managing high-performance eventers it’s no surprise that Rachel has been awarded Equestrian Australia’s prestigious Groom of the Year award.
All this and so much more in this episode of THE EQUESTRIAN EXPERIENCE.
