The child prodigy
She may be small but she's super determined and certainly wont go down without a fight. She excels in the dressage phase so expect her to be towards the top of the order going into day two.
I am 29 years of age and in my 13th year as a professional event rider. I am based at Penhill Farm, in Salperton where I have access to some fantastic facilities in which to produce and train event horses.
Before I began eventing, I successfully competed show ponies and working hunter ponies, in which the highlight was winning the Supreme Pony Championship at Horse of the Year Show in 2003.
My switch to eventing started with Noble Springbok a 14.2hh pony, and we were selected in 2005 for the Pony European Championships in Pratoni Del Vivaro, Italy where the GB team won a gold medal and I won an individual bronze medal.
2017 was a great season for Laura, she had her first 3* WIN at Ballindenisk CIC***, he then followed with another 3* WIN at Burgham CIC***.
Defiantly one to watch this season!
- Competed twice at the European Games in 2011 & 2015
- Competed at the World Games in 2008
- Laura is blind in one eye following a serious fall in 2013.
