Fanny Wallace, from Norway, was with us from November 2017 to the autumn of 2019. She arrived with two horses and was very nervous jumping 1.10m. After spending the first winter, spring and summer with us her confidence increased immensely and she reached her targets, competing at the Sunshine Tour in a 1.30m grandprix with Uzar and at her first international 2** 1.35m with Jonti.
In 2019, she competed in two finals which she qualified for at Hickstead out of 130 starters. Riding Uzar she qualified and was placed in both Championships in the Main Arena at Hickstead; a dream come true! She then began competing in 1.35m and 1.40m,, staying confident and completing very competitive rounds.
Fanny Wallace - International Trainee

Molly first came to us in July 2018, travelling back and forth from Uni and family and work commitments.
Competing a horse called Billy Flintstone in many Newcomer and Foxhunter classes, she has shown great improvement in her riding skills and understanding of young horses; Flinstone is only six years old.
Flintstone will be competed by Alex over winter while Molly concentrates on her University studies at Exeter.
Molly Lambert - Young rider from the UK
July 2018 onward
Zara Keetley - 14 Year Old Rider
Zara bought her horse, Quinn, from us in January 2018 and has been coming for continued lessons ever since. After a few teething problems her parents sent her to us for one weeks training to improve her skills and knowledge. She has since been back twice for further one week training during school holidays and reached a huge achievement of competing at Pyecombe and Hickstead for the first time.
Experiencing Hickstead is a daunting and exciting time, especially for a 14-year-old who is competing against adults. Zara excelled in all spheres, jumping a fantastic double clear, her first time on grass too. Zara regularly comes back for weekly training and especially during half terms and holidays.
Ollie - Student Rider
Ollie Regularly comes for lessons with two horses at our base in Cowfold. He has improved a huge amount and takes homework back to practice on before returning on a monthly basis for more tuition and hitting higher targets.
