Louise Kittle Editor-in-Chief

Joined PONY in 2014 Starting riding age 6

Growing up in central London, Louise's mum probably thought she would safely avoid having a horsey daughter. But she hadn't banked on the impact a pony ride would have when Louise was two years old! The bug had bitten. After years of begging for riding lessons, Louise's mum finally gave in, and began driving Louise 40 minutes out into the Surrey countryside for pony rides. Louise now owns Ted, a six-year-old Irish gelding. Together they hope to event – well, Louise at least has her plans, while Ted is currently more concerned with the whereabouts of his next meal. As Editor-in-Chief, she is often found on the phone to celebrity riders planning exciting features and photoshoots.

Laura Hodgson Assistant Editor

Joined PONY in 2012 Starting riding age 8

Laura has been riding since forever! She started riding her mum’s pony when she was just two and got her own when she was 10 – Piper is now the grand age of 27 and Laura says he’s still as cheeky as ever! Laura competed at Pony Club and Riding Club before taking a break while she was away at university studying English Language and Linguistics. When she returned, life became full-on ponyfied because, as well as getting back in the saddle competing a friend’s horse, Laura landed her super-cool dream job on PONY mag. In her job as Assistant Editor, Laura spends her time writing loads of fab features for you to read, as well as going on photoshoots and meeting celeb riders and their gorgeous horses. One of Laura’s favourite parts of the job is pampering the ponies on photoshoots, making sure they look glam for their moment of fame!

Victoria Rea Assistant Editor Digital

Joined PONY in 2014 Starting riding age 5

Victoria started riding from a young age, spending as much time as possible at her local riding school. At the age of 10, she got her own pony, a gorgeous Connemara pony called Adam. She now owns Flynn, a 16hh Irish gelding, who often takes a starring role on the PONY Instagram page. They love eventing together, and think cross-country is definitely the best. After studying at the University of Exeter, she landed her dream job working for PONY Magazine. In the office, she spends her time writing fab features for you all, as well as filming fab videos and covering all the goss on PONY's social media channels!

Jessica Lewis Magazine Assistant

Joined PONY in 2016 Starting riding age 3

Relatively new to Team PONY, Magazine Assistant Jessica has been riding since she was just three. Jessica’s horsey highlight came when she was thirteen and competed in mounted games at the Pony Club Championships. She went on to gain her Pony Club AH test and is still heavily-involved with coaching her local PC mounted games team. She owns a 15-year-old chestnut mare, Twankey, but, at 16.2, she’s a touch on the tall side for mounted games practice, although she probably wouldn’t say no if she got the chance! Jessica studied English Literature at university, which is a good job really when you’re helping to produce a magazine!
