 Meet the Owner of Riding and Harness Stuff: Sanchia May

Growing up as a pony-mad child, Sanchia loved show jumping. Unfortunately, after a serious fall, she was advised by her doctors to give up riding. Knowing that a life without horses simply wasn’t an option, Sanchia turned to carriage driving and has never looked back.

In 2000, she was British Junior Champion and Top British Driver Under 25. She has been competing at National level with singles for over 20 years and has recently taken up tandem driving. Sanchia is also the current Scottish Multiples Champion and a list 2 BC judge.

Whilst driving is Sanchia’s passion, she still plays around with a little ridden dressage and is highly involved with the equestrian community as a whole, supporting friends at a high level in almost every discipline.
