Christine Reeve is 55 years old and lives on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia. She is a former resident of New Zealand, where she left school at 15 to work with race horses. It was not until she came to Australia in 1984 that she took out her jumps jockey license. She rode 30 winners over the jumps. Christine always enjoyed the spectacle of rodeo and would have loved to live that life, but she always found herself drawn to racing. She is still a track-work rider at the Cranbourne Training Complex, Victoria, Australia.
