Blue Chip’s sponsored rider David Doel was featured on Horse & Hound’s website this week.
Click here to see the ‘7 exciting young event riders to take note of this season’ article that featured the below excerpt featuring David’s goals for 2015.
2. David Doel, British
Base: Chippenham, Wilts
Top ride: Miss Caruso, a 15-year-old mare by Flemmingh, owned by David and Jane James.
Best results to date: team gold and individual bronze at the junior Europeans in 2011, team silver at the young rider Europeans in 2013 and team bronze at the young rider Europeans in 2014.
What’s on the cards for 2015? This is David’s first year out of the young rider bubble, so it’s likely to be a consolidating season. Miss Caruso has competed at three-star with previous rider Chris King, so can give David valuable experience. The pair will start their season early with two-stars on the Sunshine Tour in Portugal, then aim for Tattersalls CIC3*and Nations Cup teams.
What gives him the edge? David has been one of the bright stars of the junior and young rider gang over the past few years and was the leading under-21 rider last year. His mother Maggie is a BHSI, a former grand prix dressage rider and advanced event rider. And David is based at the family farm, so he has good back-up.
