Wow, what a busy few months we have had! We've had our first dressage fix of the year with the Winter Dressage Champs with so many of our fabulous customers riding in our saddles competing there.

Amazing results and also HUGE congratulations to Megan Barratt, Isobel Lickley, Charlotte McDowall and Sophie Taylor who have all made it onto the British Dressage Pony European Short list!!
We had a wonderful time visiting Badminton Horse Trials, watching our fleet of riders competing at one of our favourite events and the opportunity to catch up with customers also on a social level. Well done to all our riders and customers who tackled the course and did us proud! We love being part of your team!
A special mention and huge congratulations has to go to our brand ambassador Gemma Tattersall who has won the first leg of the Event Riders Masters on Quick Look V. An amazing feat in itself but she is the first ever female rider to win a series leg riding in our saddles!!! Gemma achieved a clear showjumping round, followed by a faultless round cross country with a finishing score of 36.9, which ensured that the combination achieved a personal best at this level and setting a new record with the lowest ERM finishing score! With Gemma focused on winning the series, we'll be riding every step of the way with her!!! Watch this space!
Tricia with Gemma and Quick Look V
