Initially from Dingle, Ireland, Aoife grew up riding, before moving to the UK to pursue a career as a showjumping groom.
Aoife started out at the prestigious ‘Billy Stud’ as a competition groom, gaining huge experience on the national circuit before getting a taste for International competition grooming. From here to obtain more International involvement, she moved to The Oakingham Stud.
This position also allowed her the opportunity to learn more on the stud side of life, including prepping mares and foals for presentations, assisting foaling down and handling foals and youngstock in a variety of scenarios.
Aoife is excellent with young or nervous horses and has a very calm disposition.
