David started his working life racing yachts and still gets out occasionally. However that has to take a back seat to his other passion, horses and eventing, which took him to Hungary in 2009 as part of the support crew for the European British 2* Eventing Support Team & then again in 2011 when they won Gold. Living out in the country keeps him busy walking and having fun in dog agility, with his Border Collies. He is also to be seen treading the boards.
