Then, recovering her composure, she continues to talk about the loss of the love of her life. ‘I know Simon lives on with me in everything I do. I also know he’d never want it to be too much for me, because he had so much belief in me. Now my whole purpose in life is to follow the dream we both had. A lot of people expected I wouldn’t carry on with the horses after what happened. But I couldn’t stop.’
