Joanne Ivimey has spent a lifetime riding horses. "I started riding at the age of five. I was lucky to have owned a pony then. At eighteen, I realised I was happiest riding horses - so a hobby became a career". Joanne, popularly called Joe, is now the Yard Manager at the Dubai Equestrian Centre at Nad Al Sheba. Having taught riding for the past 30 years, Joanne answered some of the basic questions we had about children and horses.
"Horse-riding is more fun than roller-blading," says Joe.
