Principal Rider, Trainer and Coach
Fawks Stud is very fortunate to have the very talented Fern Wright as part of their family and stud. Fern has been riding since she was 5 years old and believes she was born to ride. She has an incredible affinity with horses and a sensitivity to their needs. Her approach is always calm, confident, respectful and encouraging to both horse and rider.
As a child she competed in all facets of riding at Pony Club and also enjoyed showing. She started on a Shetland pony, but soon moved up to a large pony, Arilpa Montana. With "Zac" she competed successfully at Pony Club, and in Open and Breed Showing.For many years she has shown all sections of the Welsh Stud book, having led and ridden all these sections at Welsh, HOTY, Royal and Agricultural shows.
As she matured she joined Equestrian Australia and her interests turned to Dressage. Her career with thr very talented Kamber Pryderi began in 2005 with him being started under saddle, and continued until 2019 when he retired from grand prix duties. They were a very successful combination in showing - winning Supreme Ridden Welsh in 2 states, as well Working Hunters and of course dressage.
In Dressage they competed from Preliminary to Grand Prix together and gained many excellent results. Most their competing was whilst Fern was a Young rider and there awards included 2012 Champion Young Rider at the Australian Dressage Championships, Under 25 Big Tour Champion 2017 Boneo Classic, Under 25 Big Tour Champion at 2017 Youth Dressage Championships. BB has now retired from Grand prix to take up the position of Schoolmaster for Fern's younger sister. BB is, however, still considered royalty at stud.
Fern now has a considerable team in training and/or competition.
She has started many horses and ponies, trained them, and helped people sell them. She starts and trains all the stud's ponies and horses.
