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 nine-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.


Jo Browne Editor

Joined PONY in 2018 Starting riding age 1

Jo grew up on a farm, where her favourite after-school activity was to jump on her pony and round up the cows for milking.These days she enjoys hacking out and taking part in Riding Club activities, and she harbours a dream of turning her coloured cob, Betsy, into a showjumper. When Jo’s not riding, she’s walking around the woods with her daughters and their ponies or taking them to Pony Club rallies. Jo’s horsey claim to fame is that she rode in the Shetland Pony Grand National at Olympia and won an enormous trophy – for falling off!
