• Update on Pippa Kearns our Sponsored Dressage Rider


    Pippa and Rosy her horse have represented GB at Keysoe CDIPJY in April and produced 2 solid tests on the first two days and came 8th overall in the Freestyle to music with 68%. This was the first time she had ridden to music. So a very well done to Pippa!

    Addington Premier League was the last competition before sitting her GCSE’s, a great test and 67% put her 8th in the placings.

    Following her GCSEs, Pippa competed at Wellington, Hickstead and Hartpury Premier Leagues. Both Wellington and Hickstead saw Pippa and Rosy in the placings on both days in both tests and Rosy wearing her fabulous new saddle cloth from ‘First Equestrian Insurance Solutions’.

    At the end of July Pippa was back on the road, this time wearing the George Cross and representing Byrds Eastern Region at the Home International. 2 days and 4 great scores in the Mediums and FEI followed and Pippa’s team finished 4th out of 28 teams. Pippa said that the atmosphere was incredible with both opening and closing ceremonies on the first and last days.

    Pippa qualified for the Medium Championships at Sheepgate U25’s Dressage Championship and has also been selected to ride on the Byrds Eastern Medium Team. A full week of competitions start on 22nd August in Lincolnshire; Pippa and Rosy are riding in 6 classes including the Medium Championship, Team Competition and Freestyle. Pippa will also be celebrating her 16th Birthday at Sheepgate.

    What a wonderful season Pippa is having and we wish her luck for her forthcoming competitions.
