Tom grew up hunting and eventing in the United Kingdom. During his time working as a professional event rider Tom visited the USA in 1994 to train with Showjumper Ian Silitch. After a few visits Tom decided to permanently relocate and went on to become the assistant rider, trainer and manager at Ian’s IMS Farm. In 2013 Tom moved to the Middleburg, Virginia area to become a full-time hunter/jumper trainer. He currently runs G&T Equestrian LLC with his partner Grace Long. Toms experience as a ground man for a top rider and barn developed his enjoyment of working with horses and riders of all levels to improve their skills for the show ring.
