Updates From Amber O’Neill


Many thanks for agreeing to sponsor Amber, our ponies are looking great on their Blue Chip, with shiny coats and healthy hooves.

Since we last spoke Amber has been to the Junior World Trophy in Hungary which was a once in a lifetime experience. Fortune Teller went beautifully in every phase and we were over the moon with her performance. Amber was placed 5th in the Dressage, 5th in the Derby and 5th in the Cones and much to our surprise we discovered we had moved up a place to 4th overall! The English team was also 4th so although we just missed out on medals both times we are extremely pleased with the result.

.

Since our return from Hungary Fortune Teller had a well deserved rest before the Junior National Championships in York. Fortune Teller repeated her brilliant performance in Hungary in order to win Best Turned Out, Best Dressage and Reserve National Champion and we were again a member of the England Team who won the team event for the 5th year running.

.

Last weekend we took Jasper to a Driven Le Trec, which although not our normal discipline, contains elements that are excellent training for Horse Driving Trials. Jasper excelled again, to be placed 2nd in the Distance Section, 1st in the Accumulator Cones, 2nd Overall which placed him as Reserve Champion.

.

Yesterday was the start of the Indoor Season for us, and we were at Sparsholt Winchester with Fortune Teller where Amber had a start to finish lead with Best Dressage in class, a clear in the Cones, and fastest times in 2 of the 4 Obstacles, winning Best Junior and finishing in 1st place with a ten penalty lead! We received lots of complements on our smart clothing!

.

Over the winter we will be concentrating on the indoor season with Fortune Teller, hopefully qualifying for the Indoor National Championships in April and possibly doing some ridden dressage with Jasper.

.

Next event is 28 November. Thank you very much for all your help and support.

.

Best Wishes.
