My name is Andi Rickard and I am the reigning (8 years) ladies national scything champion.
I also won the bronze medal in the men's category this year which is rather pleasing!
I have been using a scythe for 9 years and teaching for 5 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.
