Louise Francis

Louise looks after the Website, Social Media and Marketing aspects of the club and was new to the committee for the 2015 Season.

Louise has been riding since she was 9 years old, and learnt to ride at Wishaw Riding Centre.  She then went on to working on a DIY yard at the age of 14, caring for and exercising horses of all sizes and shapes.  This is where she found her own horse, Beani, who she used to regularly compete at The Gate Riding Club.

Louise also spends alot of time backwards and forwards to Wales, where her family breed Welsh Section A,C and D’s. Louise was regularly thrown on ponies in her younger days,to break them ready for new lives they had ahead of them.

Louise is now Office Manager at Fidelis Contract Services as well as Sales Director for her families business www.MaltaBuyproperty.co.uk.


Louise also has a 3 year old daughter,Imogen, who now has her own 5 year old pony whom she competes at the Gate RC.  Louise also competes her Veteran Horse Beani(aged 24) in local and Veteran Horse Society showing.  Beani is full of character and you’ll often find Louise trying to convince Beani to show at The Gate.

As well as  all of this,Louise is also the PR and marketing officer for The Veteran Horse Society, so if you’re ever at an event, look out for Louise looking after the trade stand for the VHS.
