After many years working hard to balance a passion for dressage alongside a corporate career, Katie has created Riviera PR Ltd with equestrians at the heart of the business.
Named after Katie's horse River, Riviera PR aims to help riders and brands come together to create a successful team for both parties. After many years generating sponsorship and brand ambassador deals for herself, Katie knows the lengths it takes to find and secure the right companies to create a successful partnership. From both a rider and a company's stand point, pulling together the right team can ensure not only a successful season but great exposure and sales too.
Katie has worked in the top echelons of the sporting industry, not limited to Formula 1, GT Racing and America's Cup sailing, bringing her regularly into contact with some of the world's greatest athletes. It has given her the insight and drive to understand what it takes to succeed at the top and a real attention to detail, both from a sports person's view and also a business one. Katie will go above and beyond to help you reach your goals.
River is Katie's 17hh 9yo Westphalian mare whom Katie has owned since a 4 year old, progressing up through the levels.

They finished 2019 winning the Petplan Area Festival Final and Senior Home International at Medium level and 2020 saw them finish 3rd at the Petplan National Finals and compete in their first Advanced Mediums.
