Amy Thomson qualifies for the WOW Saddles Star Championships

As we follow the riders who have qualified for the WOW Saddles Star Championships, Amy Thomson tells us a bit more about her and her horses…

“I am 21 years old, a farmer’s daughter from a village called Dyffryn in Vale of Glamorgan. I currently have 3 competing horses and 2 young ones coming through. I event on my 14.2 piebald called Super Snoop and am hoping to do 1* events this year.  He has qualified for the Haygain Final at Blue Chip Championships. My top jumper Sunshine V has qualified for the WOW Saddles Star Championships. I have her since I was 17, I am currently the Dodson and Horrell 1.15m Amateur Champion held at Aintree last November. I have qualified for the WOW Star Qualifier this year and the British Amateur Finals held at Arena UK in April.”

“I am hoping to move Sunshine V and my other horse called Boheme up to County shows this summer. Boheme is a grade c gelding and I have had him about a year. He was 5th in the Dodson and Horrell 1.10m Amateur Championship. I was 4th in last year’s Star qualifier so I am hoping to go back and give it my best shot. I am also starting to break and produce a youngster at my yard in Dyffryn. I have just opened my Equestrian Centre called AJT Equestian, where I have a 65 x 35 outdoor arena with silica sand and Martin Collins fibre surface. I am holding my first show in March 15th and 16th, Combined Training Event. I also am starting up my own herd of cows at the farm. On ponies I jumped for the Welsh Showjumping team at 5 HPIs, 8th in the HOYS Foxhunter 2008, Pony Club Eventing Champion, Riding Club Dressage Champion. I also have passed my HGV so drive myself to shows, I currently self fund my competing but am on the look out for sponsors.”
