Meet Theo Funnell a horse focused 15 year old living near Holsworthy in Devon. Theo has ridden all his life and is proving that investing time with youngsters, building trust and teamwork together pays off. With 9 horses on the yard at home and riding for other owners he is keept busy and focused on his dream to have his own yard.
My love of horses came from my mum. When I leave school I am hoping to run my own yard where we are now. My passion is Eventing but I enjoy Dressage and Showjumping through the winter too.
Theo currently has two horses of his own, Macaroni and Dora, both of which came over from Ireland and produced from scratch by Theo to now be competing at BE100.
I prefer it when we bring on horses on ourselves, you get to know each other inside out and there’s just no better feeling than the trust built this way.
I am very lucky enough to have 3 show jumpers who I'm currently taking through the levels of BS. I am also studying Equine Behaviour and Training at University to go alongside my experience in the equine industry.
Theo also rides for other owners.
