About Me

Hi! My name is Amy and I’m the owner and writer at The Velvet Court!

I’m just a girl who loves horse racing as much as she does fashion. Sharing life because it is too short not to capture the memories and learn new things.

​I started this blog because I didn’t get a horse racing tipping position on another website, so I thought, why not do it myself? I also want to educate the world about what it’s like to have a disability, as I believe that those who know better do better and this blog is a perfect way to do this! The name was created by a friend and I liked it so it stayed! 

​A few fun facts about me:

  • I have a very rare condition called Nemaline Rod Muscular Myopathy
  • I’m a university student majoring in marketing and advertising
  • Horse racing is my passion in life
  • Three words to describe me: determine, funny and passionate
