Graham Babes is a Showjumping Rider on the #horsescotland Performance Programme.
DOB: 28/01/1998 (18)

Graham's sporting hero is Marcus Ehning - He does so much on the horse but never actually moves. I have followed his career and respect what he does. I would love to be able to emulate his success. HisEquestrian Ambition is being selected to compete at an Olympic Games.
I was not that interested in horses when I was younger. I used to attend shows with my sisters to watch them compete. I started riding when I was 7, and when I was about 8 I started really concentrating on it and going to shows to compete myself. I am now working on improving and trying to be the best I can be.
