The Performers

Kirsty Stunt ridng performerKirsty McWilliam
Kirsty is the founder of riders of the storm. Kirsty started her equestrian career at the age of ten, when she was introduced to the sport of Equestrian Vaulting (gymnastics on horseback). Kirsty was quick to learn her new skill and was selected for the Scottish team. During this time Kirsty competed regularly throughout Europe and was in the first British vaulting team to win at an international competition. After 18 months in England working for one of Europe’s largest stunt teams, Kirsty returned home to her roots, firstly training horses and then starting her own vaulting group and stunt team. Kirsty and her team now perform regularly at shows and events throughout Britain.
