Abbi is a freelance Stunt Co-ordinator, Stunt Performer and Horse Master.
She moved into stunt work on the recommendation of a friend:
The skills I had were hang gliding, show jumping, wind surfing, water skiing, jet skiing, and he said, “You should be using those to earn you a living, wouldn’t you like to do that?” I said, “I would love to do that, but doing what?” And he said, “Well what about stunts?” And it just came out of the blue. He had a friend that was a stunt man, and I gave it a moment and I said, “I need to meet this friend of yours.” So he put me in touch with him and the next day I went to see him. He told me all about the business and I started my training that very evening. Every day, basically, of every week, I’d be doing some training.
