Event Season 2022

 The event season started for Poppet and I at Poplar Park Horse Trials in the BENovice. Our dressage has improved greatly over the winter months and we came out with a score of 30 for our first dressage of the season.

We finished the day with a great clear across the country with some time faults dropping us to 8th.  After Poplar we headed to Great Witchingham at the end of March to do another BENovice.

I definitely improved my riding to get the best out of him with the Dressage and jumping. I then got the ride on Poppet who I currently event; Poppet is a 16yr old American Paint cross TB. Along with Poppet I currently have a homebred called Echo who is 6yrs old who started her eventing career last summer. I a
