Richard Davison gets back to normal after a hectic start to the year!

What a hectic time it has been for WOW Sponsored rider Richard Davison – and we are not talking just competing! His social life has been buzzing! “After a full on 2012, especially after the Olympics and commitments with World Class, I spent a fun Christmas and New Year with friends and family before we jetted off on a ski trip to Meribel to stay in a luxurious chalet,” Richard tells us. “It was a wonderful present from Lady Derby to celebrate her horse Artemis’ Olympic selection and performance and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.”
“We arrived home for just one day – enough time to set the washing machine into overdrive – and then popped back on a plane to Barbados to celebrate legendary show jumper, Geoff Billington’s wedding to the lovely Sarah Saltman. John Whitaker was best man, and guests included his brother Michael Whitaker and a host of other equestrian personalities – it was as you would expect, a lot of partying!”

“Now the partying is over and we are getting back to the normal routine thank goodness! I have been taking several World Class clinics with Rob Hoekstra and carrying out other duties and attending meetings. All the horses are back in work now and I am looking forward to starting Aliano in Grand Prix classes over the next few months.”
