Ella is a talented young homebred mare, due to her size she has had a slightly quieter season to allow her to fully mature and grow into her long legs! Throughout the season she has continued to become stronger both mentally and physically allowing her to cope with the demands of the sport very well! She is another home -bred Tom is very pleased to have kept the ride on after selling her to Ana, a very supportive owner and credit to the team. Competing very well at BE90 level this season, with her first event being Rackham where she finished 10th, continuing onto Eridge where she produced what she knew as a great double clear! Unfortunately there was a slight satnav error resulting in them missing out a jump out of an otherwise very rewarding cross country round! We are hoping with more strength and a better understanding of the sport next season she will come out on her true form and fly around. Ella produced a great test at Firle (her PB in fact), she continued the event having a great show jumping round, rolling an unfortunate pole however there was no stopping her as she proceeded onto the cross country clear inside the time leaving her in 2nd place! Her final run of the season was at Twesledown, where she finished 4th, Tom mentioned her feeling like a completely different horse to the beginning of the season and being very excited about her future!
