My name is Andi Rickard and I am the reigning national scything champion (since 2019) and nine times ladies champion.
I have been using a scythe for 13 years and teaching for 9 years.
I am a teaching member of the Scythe Association of Britain and Ireland (www.scytheassociation.org)
I have taught many people, young and old alike, from all walks of life.
I have also appeared on a number of TV programmes including BBC Countryfile and featured in magazines such as The Field and The Big Issue.
In 2019 I was honoured to represent Great Britain at the European Scythe Championships in Austria and finished a creditable 24th place. Not too shabby considering that most of the competitors were half my age!
