Horses Horses and more Horses, well its in the blood! My mother Hilary Bosomworth was the one who had the competition influence on myself and my sister Julia, Hilary competed in the show ring riding at Royal International, and all major county shows, on her show hack Centurion Matador, he was a fabulous horse, which thanks to him, we would proberbly be not here right now in the equestrian sports.
The History Behind Us
I started riding at 3 years old on a fabulous pony called Fred, he also taught my younger sister to ride too, we did local shows with him, and the bug for showing really kicked in so then we bought a few more showponies, and really started to do well. Within 2 years we were riding ponies for Flyde Saddlery and other show producers, Peter Wilkinson came across a top pony which was found in the riding school, this pony was a star! Flyde Majestic Prince, he won nearly every show on the circit. So, we continued through showing till, I was 25 years old, we did very well, and even on the way bred a few top show ponies too. Wescoe Regal Charm, Royal International Winner, Hoys top two. Bred by us

So how did dressage start, well we always did do a few little tests with the ponies, but when I left school I worked for Dressage Rider Damian Hallam, and went on to be head girl, running the yard, sales, breaking etc, gaining lots of experience. Every night I was thinking I love this sport, started out looking into a few options, I took an ex show horse Spyanfly Storm trooper, to win the regionals, and at my first regionals too. Then I rode a huge 17.2 gelding by Don Primero, and took him through to the British Dressage winter championships.
