We are proud to support a small team of riders throughout the UK and are excited to see what 2017 holds for #TeamEclat
I am a 20 year old event rider balancing life as an eventer with a university degree. I have been riding since I was 2, and was very lucky to have built a solid foundation for my career with horses through Pony Club and constant training over the years with some great trainers and of course my mum! During my GCSE’S I trained very hard with my pony Bandalera with whom I was selected to represent team GB at the Pony Europeans in 2011 and 2012 in Poland and France where we won a Team Silver medal. After missing out on my Junior European team dreams due to horse injury, I then started a university degree at my local university in Suffolk and have bought along a few talented young horses from unbroken. I now have the ride of Pepparco, or ‘Peppa’ (pictured) who is a 16’1 chestnut mare and my best friend! She is incredibly talented, and loves what she does! We ended the 2016 with a flyer of a clear round Oasby Intermediate and next year my aims with her are our first CCI** together and perhaps an aim to campaign in the Young Rider Trials for the Young Rider Europeans! I also have a very talented 5 year old called Gloria who we produced ourselves and will progress to BE100 and beyond next year! She has all the talent to be very successful in the eventing world so we are producing her slowly and carefully to fulfill her potential! I am very lucky to have two beautiful mares, and cannot wait to continue working hard and see what next season brings!
My name is Hannah and I am currently competing on my 14.2 pony , Foxy.
With Foxy I mainly focus on Eventing and showjumping. In the upcoming months of 2017 Foxy and I are aiming to achieve many things within these disciplines.
One of our main goals is to qualify and succeed at the Royal Highland show. I am also aiming to be selected to compete for Scotland in the junior showjumping team with Foxy this year, however we have our work cut out for us before that stage. I would also love to carry on Eventing with Foxy this year at a higher level and try to push both our limits.
My name's Beth and I'm 25 from London. Similarly to Maddie, I'm trying to balance work, a masters in psychology and horses!
My horses, Aragorn and George enjoy doing a bit of everything. My greatest achievements have been with George, who I've done everything with myself, which makes me even more proud! Winning leading rider, Intro dressage championships, Show Jumping and Jump Cross championships.
My goals for 2017 are to achieve similar results and get Aragorn back in competition again!
I believe if you work hard, you can achieve anything - and you never, ever stop learning.
