In November 2018, riders from around the world competed in the BD Online Associated Championships. Helen from Odiham in Hampshire placed 2nd in the Elementary class and answers our quick fire questions below.
I started at just four years old, I loved horses from a very early age.
I have given up riding twice and come back to it. At one point I didn't compete for 15 years!
Across the Road (Domino to his friends) is a 14 year old piebald Irish Sports horse.
I used to drive past his field and I just fell in love with him. When I heard through a friend that he was for sale I jumped at the chance. He is big at nearly 19 hands, we have been together 4 years. He is such a good boy! When I first had him he did not understand anything but straight lines, he used to jump out of the school on a regular basis, because we could not turn.
I would love to get to the Pet Plan final and ride a test I'm proud of.
Getting such a big horse to work over his back.
Scoring an 8 in a Medium training test!
It was three years ago at the yard I keep my horse.
Great feedback and by using the training classes it helps you to improve - the feedback is invaluable.
