Nicola Jones – Eventing


Nicola Jones is a 27 year old and Paramedic with Great Western Ambulance Service. She have been riding since she was 4 years old and was introduced to competing whilst touring the local shows and winning the lead rein classes with a very competitive father and adored pony Lucy Locket. Thankfully since then she has progressed through pony club, riding club and ended up in love with the world of Eventing.

..

Taboo (Temperament) is a 9 year old Dutch warmblood, sired by Nimmerdor. She has had Taboo since he was 4 years old, and he certainly has his quirks. He lives out, as he jumps out of the stable. Many a time Nicola has been called back to the temporary stables to calm the mad dapple grey who has grown 2 foot and wants to get out.

.

Nicola’s parents fields are fenced at nearly 6 foot to keep him in and he is known locally for tormenting other riders who may dare to ride past. Taboo is cold backed so Nicola can often be seen holding onto the end of the lead rope at events while Taboo does a good impression of a pogostick. All in all apart from his quirks he is fantastic, a pleasure to ride a pleasure to own and an absolute star.  Nicola can honestly say Taboo is her best friend.

.

Nicola won the sponsorship deal with Blue Chip in January 2009. She won a section at Broadway Novice event in the October 2008 and Eventing magazine contacted her for a interview. The magazine featured her as rider of the month with a photo and a brief article about her and Taboo. As rider of the month Nicola won a bag of Blue Chip Dynamic feed. Blue Chip invited all riders of the month to submit a CV with the carrot of sponsorship and chose her as the lucky winner.

.

Since then Nicola has been feeding Blue Chip Pro and Dynamic to Taboo and he looks fantastic. His fitness and stamina has improved no end, his recovery rates after every fitness session are improving and he looks fit and strong. He maintains muscle well and Nicola’s dressage instructor has commentated on how supple he is.

.

Nicola really believes that the feed has done wonders for Taboo, and is now riding a fit, strong horse each day and is seeing fantastic results.

2009

We have had a brilliant 2009 eventing season, Temperament looks fantastic. His stamina, fitness, recovery times, breathing,, muscle maintenance everything has improved and I truly believe it is down to the quality of the Blue Chip feed.

.

Temperament and myself are being reviewed for the selection process for the European CCI** Supported by British Riding Clubs and British Eventing. Temperament has many dressage wins and BSJA winnings as well.
