London born Catherine, studied to be an Architect at Cambridge University, but couldn’t escape the pull of a life with horses. In the world of The Cavalry of Heroes Catherine manages all the logistics and coordinates the team and horses while on set.
Always thinking of the well-being of others including the Cavalry team, her horses and our clients, Catherine deftly manages the logistics required for all bookings alongside her helpful admin assistants. Whether your production is large or small, her friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant approach will make all the difference on the day as you realise all is in hand and is being professionally looked after.
Catherine is also a talented historian specialising in women riding horses and carriage travel throughout history. She is a dedicated horsewoman, riding and bringing on our beautiful horses in sidesaddle and a little bit of trick training and liberty, including her two very special boys Curioso Maximus (her white Andalusian) and Guinness, the horse that started it all.
Our team is made up of experienced riders who are working in the filming industry and are regularly performing in live shows across the country. They are available as background riders, riding doubles for actors and professional stunt and trick performers trained in trick riding, horse falls, roman riding, charges, falling and weaponry. Supported by an efficient ground crew including horsemasters, grooms and horse handlers. We’re a company of professional horsemen and women where the horses and job come first with no big egos attached.
