Toni Terry: Dressage Debut
The always lovely always classy Toni Terry is currently in training to appear in an equestrian event at the end of the year. She plans on making her dressage debut at the Olympia Horse Show in London in December.
She’s been training with national champ Vicki Thompson to get her in shape for the event.
As we all know, Toni is of the classic WAG type: get in there early and ride it out for the win. She helped to support hubby John when he was in Chelsea’s YTS scheme on her wages as a beauty therapist and is still his biggest supporter now. She says she’s itching to start something of her own now:
“I’ve always worked and I feel strongly about having my own career. That only ended when I fell pregnant. I’ve tried to avoid the spotlight. I am exceptionally proud of John – what he has achieved since he was 17 is amazing…
But now the children are more grown up I can exert myself a bit. Before I felt I was John’s wife and a mum first and foremost. Now I think I have something to say – especially about the equestrian world. My aim is to get to the top levels of dressage. I don’t just want to be known as John’s wife but also as a working mum.”
Good stuff. We’re actually terribly excited about seeing how cute Toni looks in her jodpurs and riding boots. Roll on December!
