Annette Scott has had a long and proud association working as a journalist-photographer for Farmers Weekly since 2004, and more recently its associated agripreneur ventures under the GlobalHQ umbrella. Her 40-plus years career in communications has included varying facets of media in provincial and community newspaper publications, radio, specialist rural and agribusiness media, and equestrian journalism, as well as event marketing and management. A born and raised farming gal, who has lived life-long in the Ashburton District, she is actively associated with farming in the region. When not in her office, she can usually be found soaking up time with family and friends, or “away horsing around” following her passion for horses – these days as an International FEI jumping judge and national sport administrator, more so than a riding competitor.
