Erika reflects on how her experiences with animals and children with special needs have impacted her outlook on the world. Erika Neo is an energetic, dedicated and hardworking individual who seeks to contribute as much as she can to any task she takes on. Starting at the age of 6 in Singapore Polo Club, Erika grew up riding and has since carved out a career for herself in the Equestrian community just seven years ago. Her tenacity, enthusiasm and ability to do weird dances during sessions have contributed significantly to her ever-growing portfolio. Previous notable accomplishments include both writing and publishing ‘The Beginners Guide to Horse Riding with the Pursuit of Horses’ and the EQUAL-ARK (Equine Assisted Learning for At-Risk Youth) Syllabus. More recently, Erika has co-created an actor-training program that used horse-therapy as part of a devising and scriptwriting process. She has since been working at the RDA, with her portfolio encompassing managing the entire stable and running a few of the riding sessions in the afternoon. When free, Erika enjoys sampling Hawker food around Singapore.
