Very honoured to be this week’s Horse and Hound ‘Best of my Fun’
And the journey home begins…what an absolutely incredible 5 days it has been. Never at my first international did I think that I would qualify for the Kur, where we finished up an super 10th place and the best Brit. Not bad for never having ridden the music before and never having competed in an Int1 freestyle. Huge thank you to the guys that came along to support, the girls at home, Rhi for making Bam look amazing the whole time, Brenda for being Brenda and finally BamBam for making my dreams come true.
A couple of little blips which pushed us into 11th place in the Int1 but we still made the top 15 so we are through to the Freestyle!!!! Totally over the moon and never thought at my first international we would complete all three!
What can I say?!?! Our first international and we placed an AMAZING 8th in the PSG out of a huge class of 27 of the best on a score of 68+%!!! The highest placed British Rider!!! I can’t thank Brenda enough for letting me compete her boy.
What a fantastic end to a great weekend at Dressage at Hickstead!!! Jen Nissen’s DHI Lightening is crowned regional champion at Advanced Medium, it’s off to Nationals we go!!! Some fantastic results with the chestnut princess to.
We can’t wait for the newest edition of Chiltern and Thames Rider Magazine to hit the shops!!! The training tips article with Rob and Maria Dent’s Nazareno Vicon looks fab 🙂 You can buy yours at www.chilternrider.com or Equine Essentials Direct
Well folks the latest edition of Chiltern and Thames Rider Magazine has just gone to print, keep an eye open for when it hits the shelves for a training tips feature with Rob. Available from Equine Essentials Direct
Very honoured to have been selected to represent Great Britain at the Deauville CDI in France with BamBam!!!
I can’t tell you the feeling having taken on Bam only about 3 years ago when he was at Novice and having taken him all the way to representing our country at Small Tour!!
That one single email has made all those years of long hours, no money and ‘characters’ worthwhile. I know its not Olympic Rings but I feel I am one step closer on the slippery ladder.
None of this would have been possible without the fantastic Lisa Hopkins and Carl Hester, the amazing girls at home on the yard who allow me to be able to bounce around in the arena. Of course, Brenda Reddy for asking me to ride her boy those few years ago and last but not least my friends.
Huge thanks has to go to my sponsors to, without their on going constant support none of this would be possible, Equine Essentials Direct, Stuart Equine, Equilibrium Products and Priory Farm Equine Spa and Rehab Centre
