Hi, I’m Ella Kiddell – Riding Specialist and Marketing
The UK is 'home' so I've explored much of Europe and now reaching the farthest-flung corners of Australia is my new mission! Further afield I've ventured to South Africa, Botswana, Tanzania & Zanzibar, Kenya, Zimbabwe & Zambia plus lots of Asia and the Pacific.
I am a country girl at heart having grown up in the leafy Surrey Hills (UK) and spent months on a polo farm in rural New Zealand. I lived in London for several years where I loved the buzz of city life but eventually I needed to escape the hustle and bustle and find some space. Moving to Australia I have definitely found that and living in Manly I spend most of my spare time at the beach running, surfing or on a stand up paddleboard. I am at my happiest surrounded by nature in a wilderness where I can just ‘be'.
