After spending time breaking in horses for a local station owner Bill then went to work for the legendary Australian Olympic eventing medallist, Neale Lavis

Bill went on to attend Agricultural College in Victoria where he one day found himself watching the eventing at the Los Angeles Olympics on the television. In that moment he decided is was something he would like to try.

Bill returned to Neale’s yard where Neale trained him and helped him get started in his eventing career. 

In 1988 Bill won a Range Rover Scholarship to train with Captain Mark Phillips at Gatcombe Park and several years later he returned to the UK with the aim of being selected for the 1994 FEI World Equestrian Games in The Hague.

In 2014 Bill was selected to represent Australia at the 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy. Although his horse Shannondale Titan made it around the very challenging cross country with no jumping faults, a minor injury meant that Bill was unable to finish the event.

Bill was again selected to represent Australia at the FEI World Equestrian Games, this time in 2018 Tryon, USA.
