Hero Seago’s blog: First update of 2014

In between an intense period of school work, WOW Saddles sponsored rider, Hero Seago, has still managed to fit in some show jumping…

The following weekend, on the 7th December I went to Sollihull EC and came 1st in a strong 80 Open class and 5th in the 90cm on Bobby, he was a little bit lively in the 90cm and took a stride out to the last fence, which made me chuckle.”

“On the 28th and 29th December, Keysoe held a New Year Pony Extravaganza Show, where I got an equal first in Springboard on AJ and a 4th in a very busy 80 Open on Bobby. Then on the 25th January we travelled up to Forest Edge in Norfolk and came equal first in 138cm Stepping Stones, which was my 1st out of 4 double clears to qualify for Scope.

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.”
