I am absolutely over the moon to say that Ceylor LAN and I have been selected to go to Rio as part of the British Olympic team. To say it is a dream come true is an understatement.
Ceylor LAN aka Sprout, is an extremely special horse, I have been lucky enough to have been producing him for his wonderful owners, Diana Bown, Samantha Wilson and Jacky Owen from the start of his career as a four year old. At only 9 he is the youngest British horse across all the disciplines flying out to Rio.
I can’t thank my wonderful team who are behind me 100% of the way as without them this REALLY would not be possible. I am so lucky to not only have Sprouts owners supporting me, but all my others horses owners past and present who have aloud me to produce their equally special horses. Without them I really would not have been able to learn and develop into the rider I am.
I need to say a huge thank you to my outstanding home team, Emily Slater, Jo Jones, Greig Elliott, Marnie Campbell, Peter (Spike) Milligan, Winston Williams, Maggie Turner, Gavin Scofield, Nick Burton, Tracy Robinson and Peter Murphy.
My extremely loyal sponsors, Mole Valley, Toggi, Topspec, Champion, Fairfax Saddles, Woof Wear, Equiclass, Flying Changes, Aqueos and Yeoman Haylage.
U.K. Sport Lottery funding has been a huge help and support over the years and has helped massively in helping me to get the best out of my horses.
And last, but by no means least my ever so supportive and loyal family, my husband Ben, my mum Jane and dad Peter and my wonderful sisters and brother, Charlotte, Lucy and George.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years without all of you this dream would not be possible.
