Welcome to my new website. I hope you enjoying reading about me and following what I’m up to through this blog. I’ll try to keep you up to date with results, news and photos. Before I go any further I’d like to say a huge thank you to my wonderful friend Laura who has helped me put all this together. We all have our strengths but technology is not one of mine – I’m learning!
I’ve got an exciting few weeks ahead of me so I can’t wait. This time next week I’ll be competing at Hickstead in the Para Summer Championships on Nick. This is the first year I’ve qualified for the Open Championships (having previously ridden in the Restricted section) so it will be the first time I get to compete against all the other top British Grade III combinations – including Deb Criddle who won silver at London last year. Nick’s been going really well both at home and in recent competitions so I’m really looking forward to showing off what we can do.
As if this weren’t enough, we’re also going to our first International Competition mid-July. OK, it’s being held in Britain (Yorkshire to be precise) but it will be the first time we will compete against international competitors. It will involve a week staying away and will be the first time I ride my new freestyle test to music. I also get to wear a Union Jack!
So as I said, exciting times with lots of firsts – I’ll keep you posted!
