Large Shoes to Fill
Most of you will undoubtedly have heard of the legendary Charlie Chaplin, star of silent screen and comedy genius. What you may not know is that his Granddaughter is a talented artist as well as accomplished equestrian, competing in Jumping. Based in Switzerland, where her Grandfather spent his twilight years in the family home, we caught up with Laura to find out a little more about her.
Where did your "horse love" come from. Did your grandfather ride?
I have loved horses since I can remember. My grandmother had 2 falabellas in the garden as well as a rescued shetland pony, so since a baby I sat on their backs. They became my best friends and toys to play with! Then I got my first real pony when I was 12 years old called Whitney, and then Dolly was and still is my first horse. My grandfather had tried horse riding a couple of times but he wasn’t very comfortable around them. He thought they were very impressive though!
