    We are very proud to announce that we are now sponsoring young rider Pippa Kearns who is a 15 year old PFEI International dressage rider on Pony Prime Squad.

    She has always loved dressage and realised her ambition to ride for Great Britain both at Hickstead and Roosendall in Holland.

    Pippa has been riding since she was 2 and enjoyed all forms of disciplines, but dressage was her passion.

    Her parents purchased Hesselteich’s Desert Rose for her in 2015 and all the training and hard work came together and they went from riding Prelims to Mediums and the Pony FEI tests.

    Her first success came at Addington Premier League and she was spotted by the Team Selectors. She was nominated, then selected to ride for Great Britain at Hickstead. In September Pippa was invited onto the Pony Prime Squad.

    Pippa commented

    “I went to my first competition abroad in December and it was an incredible experience wearing the Union Jack on my jacket and pony abroad.

    Hesselteich’s Desert Rose, is an 11 year German Pony who has competed for France on the French European Team. She is a wonderful schoolmistress, enjoys competing and loves having a big fuss made of her.

    We wish Pippa great success and will be following her eagerly!!
