Hello, I’m Kate and I am 18 years old. I have just finished my A levels and for the next year I will be working at home, helping with the running of the family business “Dennis Eventing” based at Clifton Castle, South of Bedale, North Yorkshire with mum, Vickie and sister Charlie not forgetting Little Daisy seen here in the pic ( also sponsored by the Equine Dental Vet!!).
I have always had a love of horses and I am particularly passionate about making sure all my horses are on top form, producing them myself so that they can reach their full potential.
This year I have 3 main competition horses :
Secret Desire 11 ( Lily)
Lily is a 14 year old chestnut mare and at only 15hh, Lily and I have progressed from 100 to 2 * level together. Our aims for this year and next is to get our qualification for 3*level. She is one special pocket rocket!!
Livella Z ( Connie)
Connie is a 7 year old 15.2h grey mare. She has been with us since last year and is owned by Sue Soley. Connie is a very talented mare who I have produced from BE100 to CIC*. Connie and I have also been selected for the northern team at Frickley for the junior national championships in the CCI* at the end of July.
Eric the Red (Eric)
Eric is a 7 yr old chestnut gelding. My grandma bred him and he was broken by my sister and mum before I took over to produce him from BE100 to CCI* level. My plans with him this season are to compete in the CCIY* at Frickley and we then aim to qualify for a 2* at the beginning of the 2019 season.
As well as the main competition horses, I also compete young horses at lower level and help with the day to day running of the yard which includes breaking, schooling and producing horses for clients or to sell. ( Enquiries :Dennis Eventing 07966 191923)
My recent sponsorship from Melissa at The Equine Dental Vet will help me to maintain these high standards by giving all my horses the greatest chance at being the best they can be possibly be !!
