Olivia Shuter and her horse, Spotty, have got off to a flying start together and competed in a BE80 at Frickley.They came 9th, which is an amazing result for their first event together, we look forward to hearing future results from the pair.

Imogen Williams has had a very busy Summer with her horse Bronte. In a hunter trial they did together they were placed 4th, and they also competed at Woolley show, returning with two thirds.

Alanis Milner-Moore has had a brilliant season; she competed at the Richmond Horse trials, winning her section. They are aiming to qualify for the BE100 under 18s northern region team at Frickley in July 2019.

Lucy Sawyer has had some fantastic results in the working hunter competitions. She qualified and competed at the Royal International Horse Show, the Land Rover Burghley horse trials, and has also qualified for the Horse of the Year Show, which takes place at the start of October. In June, she won at Lincoln County Show, which is one of the most prestigious qualifiers of the year. More recently, Lucy has competed at Aintree Equestrian Centre where she won both the 90 and 100 classes, and became overall supreme working hunter pony champion.
