As a 12-year-old, she was so passionate about horseriding that she worked at a local stable to pay for riding lessons. “I wanted it, so I worked for it and I got it. “I worked at the barn for two summers. I was horse camp counsellor, I worked at birthdays.”

For me my riding training is all about riding different horses. Over the years Geralt has had many horses named Roach and each one has been different, just like real horses. Every horse has a different personality and way of interacting, way of moving, and feel to ride too. So training on different horses builds up that knowledge that Geralt would naturally have built up over the years. As far as becoming a "horseman" is concerned, I have many many years to go, but I am loving every step of the way.

A horse is more to a witcher than merely a means of locomotion - just ask any bandit who has taken a well-aimed hoof to the head during combat. Additionally, many a witcher has talked over the nuts and bolts of his current contract with his horse while staring at the stars shining above the lonely road, though few would ever admit to this.Geralt named his every mount Roach, though no one really knows why or what Geralt had in mind with this name. When asked, Geralt would dodge the question or give an evasive answer. Perhaps this had just been the first word that came to his head? Roach, for her part, seemed to accept the name with no reservations.

"I did two hours gym work, two hours fight choreography, and two hours horseback riding. Which is super hard." "When people used to tell me, 'Yeah I do sports I ride horses,' I was like, 'That's not sport. The horse does everything.' No! No! You'd be surprised—it's sooo painful."
