Shannon is an eventer and showjumper who is in her second year as an Ambassador for PHR.



1.    When you were 5, you were pretty sure you’d be a “police officer” when you grew up.

2.    Are you messy or organised? “I am quite organised (given that I have storage. A girl needs storage) I have an awful habit of organising other people’s stuff…”

3.    You’re happiest when… “I am with my animals and family.”

4.    What do you like most about our brand? “How absolutely beautiful and unique every item of clothing is! Best part it is soo affordable!”

5.    What tv show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love? “Friends.”  Petite Horse & Rider Ambassador Shannon Bourke

6.    What is your biggest pet peeve? “When people say the word ‘youse’.“

7.    What is your greatest riding achievement to date? “My greatest riding achievement to date would have to be training Matilda. Tilly was a 4yo quarab mare who was absolutely impossible to ride… she would rear, buck and do just about anything to not be ridden. Took a while but she ended up being the quietest most talented little galloway I ever had!”

8.    If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see? “Ending of world hunger. World peace.“

9.    What is the one thing, you can’t live without? “Pasta. It’s a sick obsession really.”

10.  Your least favourite food? “Any seafood, zucchini, squash.” PHR Ambassador Shannon Bourke with Matilda

11.  What drew you to PHR originally? “How unique it is! Love standing out in the crowd. These days everyone is wearing the same old boring stuff. PHR is never boring!”

12.  People would be surprised if they knew… “I am nearly finished becoming a marriage celebrant!”

13.  The best piece of advice you’ve ever been given is… “If you’re not happy, find out why and fix it.“

14.  Your favourite quote? “Go for it, no matter how it ends it was an experience.”

15.  What 3 words would you use to describe PHR? “Unique, stylish, affordable.”  Shannon Bourke is in her second year as an Ambassdor for PHR

16.  What do you think your greatest strength is as a rider? “Since training Tilly I am much more of an optimistic rider. In saying that I now think about the outcome of what my actions are a lot more. So in all, my strength is being a thinker.”

17.  If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? “Would love to become a nurse/midwife. But I absolutely would love to know how to speak other languages and play music.”

18.  What is the best book you have ever read? “I love the hunger games series.”

19.  Which is the most challenging horse you’ve ridden, and why? “Definitely Matilda. She was so sensitive. She trained me to always think about my actions. She would let me know if I wasn’t doing it right that’s for sure.”


20.  How do you define success? “Happiness. If you aren’t happy then you can’t really call it success.”
