Andrew Collins
Rowen Barbary are proud to present Andrew Collins as our new sponsored rider! Andrew is based in Cheshire and is a top showing producer and runs clinics, with a lustrious career in showing spanning more than 30 years. We are excited to have Andrew on board with us, sharing his wealth of experience in such an expansive discipline such as showing. What is your disipline? Showing. Where are you based? Cheshire. Can you both tell us at what age you started riding?  In 1973 when I was 4 years old, I ended up being put on a pony and I have been riding ever since! So have you  got a favourite snack?  Bacon Butties What has been your top horse? Sure Will is my horse of a life time. I got Sure Will as a 5yr old from Country Carlow.  I was buying another horse at the time and spoke to the transporter who was bringing it back for me who mentioned he had a coloured cob for sale.  The rest as they say is history. Tell us about your goals for the future?  To be happy and competitive as I can be. Have you both got any Top Tips?  Be determined, be patient. Do you have any rituals when you are out and about?  I am a bundle of nerves at shows so I tend to go off and concentrate on my inner self and try to put everything in a box. One last question; whats your favourite Rowen Barbary product?  It's no surprise, Solution Mash!
