I started eventing 10 years ago with British eventing, prior to that I rode for my local pony club, Eridge.
I was introduced to eventing when I purchased my first horse Twister V. Together we rode at the Pony club National championships and all the way up to Intermediate/ 3* competing in the young rider championships at Weston Park and Houghton Hall. Unfortunately he had an injury in 2015 so was unable to carry on, he's now retired.
In late 2015 I bought a 3 year old who I produced myself and rode at Osberton International & young horse championships as a 4,5,6 and 7 year old. He is now 8 and at Intermediate/3* and is a very exciting horse! Currently we will focus on dressage and showjumping and maybe get out to a few events this August.
Brockley Star is a 22 year old,16hh, Irish Draught x TB. He is a superstar, a real professional, he shows his experience wherever he goes. We have grown together so much over the past 8 years. He took me from BE90 to Novice and taught me more about riding than any other horse.
We happily compete at BE100 now while I juggle my impending career as a criminal barrister. We seem like a very chilled out pair but little do people know that Brock is actually quite sharp.
I am a 17 year old event rider. I’m currently studying for my A-Levels and I hope to study Chiropractics at University.I am lucky enough to have 3 horses; Oscar, 22 year old semi-retired pony who took me around my first BE in 2016 and came 3rd in the South East Eventers League that year. Bettie, a 10 year old mare, who has given me many wins. And lastly Lemon a 12 year old who is new to the crew and we are yet to compete him. Over the last year I have competed at BE100 with my old pony Houdini, with so many great placings.
My highlights so far are…
- Winning the BRC Combined Training Championships 2018 on Bettie
- Coming 2nd at the BRC Horse Trial Championship 2019 with Bettie
- Placing 8th at my first 3-day event which was also a Championship on Houdini in 2019
- Winning Both Novice and Prelim at the NSEA Plate Championships 2019 with Bettie
I am a 26 year old professional eventing rider based in Sevenoaks, I currently have a team of 5 competition horses competing up to International 2* Level.
Last year I competed at the Mitsubishi Motors Cup at Badminton and finished 11th and in 2018 I was the leading Grassroots Rider across British Eventing.
My goal is to one day compete at the top of the sport at 5* Level and produce top level horses across all the disciplines from my yard in Sevenoaks.
Stef is an experienced and ambitious rider from East Sussex. After several years riding she bought her own pony, General Wolfe. He was young and inexperienced, but with hard work he was out to competitions.
Stef and Wolf started competing from 2014 with many successes at BE90 over 4 years, including qualifying for regional finals and the Horse and Hound 3-day event at Keysoe in 2017. In 2018 Wolf started to suffer from arthritis so is now semi-retired.
In July 2018 Stef travelled to Doncaster to see a young horse called Zac. At only 4 years old he had very little experience but had been backed well. They created a good bond quickly and have been enjoying dressage competitions and even qualified for the 2019 Sunshine Tour at Hickstead; they won the championships at Walk and Trot level.
Zac has started his jumping education with lessons and XC schooling under his saddle! He is showing his boldness and willingness to trust his rider. His education continues and the pair are hoping to get out training and competing again next year.
I am 18 and my main passion is Eventing.
I produced my horse from a 4 year old. He is a 15hh Connie Cross known as ‘Cheeky’. We have worked together competing up the levels and I am currently eventing at BE100. We will be moving up to Novice this season. In the winter I compete in Arena Eventing, Showjumping and Dressage.
Last year we qualified for 6 championships in Dressage, Showjumping, Arena Eventing and Eventing. We were placed 3rd individually at the National Riding Club Arena Eventing Championships, 4th at the National Riding Club Dressage Championships and 2nd at the SEEL Arena Eventing; sadly the others shows were then cancelled.
