          THE TEAM

          Carmen Cummiskey - Founder & Managing Director of FOMO

          CARMEN CUMMISKEY

          My name is Carmen Cummiskey and I am the Founder and Managing Director of FOMO. Horse riding has been a massive part of my life since I was a child. I participated in a variety of events growing up including dressage, show jumping and showing.

          When I was about 10 years old I suffered a bad fall due to a speeding vehicle when I was out on a hack with my friend and our ponies. Thankfully there were no broken bones but I spent the next few months suffering back pain and attending a physiotherapist unable to ride. After this accident my parents made me swear to always ride in a body protector but I hated it; it was uncomfortable, too warm and restrictive. My pony at the time, was an avid bucker and I quickly ditched the body protector as I felt it inhibited my ability in the saddle.

          A good decade or so on, there has been a lack of real innovation in the sport, so I decided to design something that would inspire rider confidence and ability in the saddle. You know what they say if you want something done right, do it yourself.
