Eventing & Showjumping
Katie is an ambitious and enthusiastic young event rider. In 2019 she is combining A levels with riding her two matching grey ponies Toddy (Killacoran Blue) and Libby (Claydon Robinia). Katie also has a new horse who came to her mid last season called Pie (Leamore Hightale) who is a 16.1hh Irish sports horse. Katie takes part in a wide variety of competitions but mainly focuses on BE eventing and does a bit of pony club, NSEA and BS showjumping.
2019 promises to be an exciting year with Libby having qualified for the Mitsubishi Motors Cup again which is held at Badminton at the start of May. Katie is am hoping to improve on last year’s result but mainly wants to have fun as “it’s amazing just to ride there”.
Toddy and Katie are planning on having a fun and enjoyable season. They are aiming to compete mostly at 100 under 18’s with a few novice under 18s if Toddy wants to. Toddy and Katie are looking to get some good results as Toddu was brilliant last season.
Katie’s aims for the event season with Pie are hopefully to step up to novice under 18s at the start of the event season after a couple of 100’s. They are hopefully going to aim for Frickley Park 1* in the under 18 team but this isn’t set in stone as they are still a new combination. Katie will see how much they can develop throughout the season as a partnership.
Katie says, “most of all I hope the horses stay fit and happy. I know that feeding them on Simple Systems is the way to do this as not only do their coats and condition look amazing the effect is truly inside and out as they are feeling incredible to ride.”
"Both ponies have always been fed on Simple System horse feeds whilst in our care and they absolutely thrive on it."
