Welcome Brand Ambassador Diane Humm.
Hello, my name is Diane Humm. I have been riding all my life and spent most of my childhood chasing sheep and cows, mostly bareback, on my pony in rural New Zealand. Opening gates was for the faint hearted, so my sister and I would jump gates and fences without a second thought. My competition career started in Eventing and Show Jumping, however I soon realised I was good at the Dressage and Cross-country phases of Eventing but was so busy getting the perfect stride in the Show Jumping that I interfered too much. Turning to straight Dressage was a natural progression, however I have also competed in Western events and at one time held a Racehorse trainer’s licence and trained a city winning galloper.
Somewhere between working full time as a Compliance Manager I find the time to work with my fun team of horses which include:
'Waterfords Tiffany' – competing Advanced and we will move to Small Tour later this year. I have owned her since she was 2 and have trained her all the way myself. She is a huge character with a cheeky and generous nature and keeps life interesting.
'Rosabaya DDS' who I bred myself and I’m so proud of how she has turned out. She is currently competing elementary with most of the medium work established.
Waiting in the wings at home are 'Burrowa Bewitched', a 3 year old Welsh x Riding Pony mare aiming for young pony classes in late 2018 and 'Anka', a 4 year old WB x TB with exciting movement.
My favourite Platinum Pony products are Platinum Wash, Platinum Crème and the Platinum Mane & Tail spray. I love big, shiny tails and these products maintain the team’s tails to perfection. 'Rosabaya' has a blaze and stockings and so Express Clean and Platinum Sox are our show day choice.
Not to be forgotten is 'Blue', my gorgeous Tasmanian Smithfield puppy who uses Violet Wash, Violet Crème and Platinum Mane & Tail to maintain his snowy locks.
