Katherine- About Me
I have been brought up around horses my whole life and got my first pony aged 5 and have been in love with riding ever since! I first started British Eventing in 2010 aged 11 and have progressed up the levels from BE80 in 2010 to doing my first BENovice on a self produced pony in 2012 going double clear. On the same pony (Watchover Jackanory – Jack) I qualified for the Badminton Grassroots Championships the following year in the BE100 class where we went double clear and came 11th as well as doing the FEI Pony Trials! Sadly due to injury I missed the rest of that year and my final year in ponies on him.
I got my two current horses both last year, Romeo at the beginning of the year and Leo at the end of the summer. I had a very successful year with Romeo last year doing my first FEI CIC* and CCI* with him and we were selected for the British U18 development squad who went to Millstreet, Ireland for the International CIC* where we went double clear and came 4th! I also made the step up to BEIntermediate with Romeo at the U21 class at Aston Le Walls where we also went double clear and came 4th! Romeo and I were also selected for the U18 regional championships held at Weston Park last October for the Eastern region, we were a counting score and helped the team to come 3rd with a fast clear XC in the time of the 8 minute long track! This year I am campaigning Romeo in the Junior European Trials and aim to do my first CIC** with him!
Last year with Leo we did 4 event from 90 to Novice (90,100,100+ and Novice) being clear XC in all four and placed including a win and double clear in three including his first BENovice! This year I aim to do his first CIC* with him and move him up to BEIntermediate as well as qualify for the U18 championships held this year at new venue Freckly Park in July.
