Nicola and Euro

Nicola has had Euro for three years now. Euro is a 16.2hh, 16yr old Irish Sports Horse and those that know her call her 'special'. Euro is a lovely willing mare and has had to be trained up to build up muscle and top-line. She was bought as a show-jumper but has turned to dressage.

"My instructor and I have spent a lot of time trying to 'destressify' her however this is an ongoing challenge which is slowly starting to work. I try to get out to compete her once or twice a month, mainly dressage, however I do try to fit in some cross country every now and again. I am mainly competing her at prelim level however I do the odd intro test and a couple of years ago tried a few novice tests, however these did not go so well. I hope to be able to do a couple of novice tests soon. Dressage anywhere will help me with this as I can enter a novice test without the stress of a show environment and get some confidence. I hope to enter one class a month to get regular detailed feedback from various judges at different levels. So far I have been very impressed with the judges comments on my test sheets and on friend's sheets as well."
