Megan Bevan and Rickamore Aurora from Pembrokeshire placed 6th in the BD Equetech Online Championships 2020 at Introductory level.
I got into horses after sharing the love with a horse mad mum. After a long break from riding, four years ago I decided to get back into horses as I really wanted to ride again.
It might not be interesting but it's certainly exciting for me, I'm just about to embark in my first season of breeding. Joining my mum who is an experienced breeder and we've just bought our first broodmare together!
Rickamore Aurora is a 13-year-old dun pure bred Connemara.
We've been together for four years in March and we found each other after my mum showed me a Facebook ad for her and I simply said 'yep that’s the one I want, Princess Aurora'.
Aurora has a character all of her own, she's clever, loyal, loving, cheeky, sassy and makes me laugh on a daily basis! The funniest thing I can think of is when we put her and her field mate in the school to loose jump together and Aurora did all the work for us! Forcing the other horse around the outside of the school and then over the jump all by herself!
We competed at Intro in the Online Championships but we are now trying Prelim!
I would say to not forget the basics! It's important to remember to work on centre lines, halts and circle shapes. Not just contact and activity and suppleness! It's something I've been working on recently and have been surprised by how much they've improved in such a short space of time!
In 2021 I hope to be bless with two gorgeous foals, one of which out of the one and only Aurora. I'd also like to start online competing with my other horse.
Is staying relaxed in the canter and loosening the grip of my inner thigh and knee to stop blocking the movement.
I would say going champion with Aurora at a Dressage to Music league!
I first heard about Dressage Anywhere through Digital Horse and have been hooked ever since!
How quickly the tests are marked! It’s perfect for showing what to work on ready for next months tests!
I’ve been riding for 4 years but only started dressage about 2 years ago!
Don’t give up! The challenge is part of the thrill.
