Profile of Liz Molyneaux


Liz and NeanaghLiz grew up in the west country and as a typical young girl enjoyed slaving for hours at the local riding school for no pay but the vague possibility of a ride at the end of the day. Never managed to persuade her parents to buy her a pony but finally bought her first horse when she was 30 - a long wait! Drifted away from horses and riding during her teens and twenties and became totally absorbed in playing cricket which she managed to do to quite a respectable level.

After a career in public school administration Liz took a degree in Business and Marketing and now works in marketing and market research. The reward for getting a decent pass was a western saddle to ride her IDxTB mare. Liz now spends a lot of time concentrating on natural horsemanship with her horses and organises clinics in the subject with UK and international trainers, mainly so she can attend and improve her own horsemanship! A sad type who actually enjoys organising all sorts of things.

Now married (to a husband who rides), and living in Bedfordshire with three horses, two Retrievers and three vintage tractors Liz and her husband enjoy taking the horses to clinics (in a vintage lorry of course) and the tractors to rallies! The original horse is now practically retired - a typical Arab x; she's 26 going on 5 - often described as having the engine of a vintage sports car; the IDxTB is a rather lovely palomino who is the most advanced of the three in horsemanship terms; and the youngster is a 14 year old grey 17.2hh ClydesdalexTB who is quick learner and just wants to please - a real joy to play with.

Liz has relinquished hands on marketing to Lorna and now drops in from time to time as a marketing consultant for Unicorn Trails. She continues to build up the number of countries she has ridden in with Unicorn Trails from as adventurous as Hungary, through France but her absolute favourite destination remains Ireland.
