Charlotte Rose from Cambridge came 4th in April's Intro Juniors class with her lovely horse Dacia, scoring a fabulous 73.04%!
My mum has always ridden and it started with me having equine therapy. I started riding about 18 months ago.
I have a learning disability, ADHD and autism. I’m home educated. Horse riding really helps me with my disability. I often struggle with understanding what my coach is telling me but we get it and Dacia really works hard for me. I got bullied when I was at school and horses helped me as they're always my friends even if I’m in a bad mood they help me feel better. I’m confident with horse riding and around horses where before I wouldn't talk now I will about the animals. If I’m in a bad mood, angry or sad the horses don't care as long as I’m there to see them and that makes me happy.
I want to be a top dressage rider! My goal is to ride at Olympia and my idol is Carl Hester.
Dacia is a 14 year old Irish sports horse cross thoroughbred, bay mare.
She was my Mum's horse and I've been riding her for two months.
I ride at Intro/Prelim levels.
Dacia can be very lazy with her hindquarters so we spend time getting her moving forwards and loosening up.
I love my clothes from Aztec Diamond Equestrian as they look great and are comfortable.
Compete more at Prelim and work to higher levels if possible. Also work with my other ponies on improving them.
To keep my heels down!
Getting 73.04% in a dressage test!
Someone recommended it on my Instagram.
I can’t always get to shows and it helps me know what I have to improve on.
