Millie’s Blog

Hi everyone! My name is Millie and I’m a 14-year-old rider from Retford, Notts, competing my pony Sky. I’ve had Sky for just over a year but due to an injury and almost a year out recovering we are only 11 weeks into full time, competitive work!

In the past 11 weeks we’ve been busy going to quite a few competitions including the BRC area qualifiers, unaffiliated dressage, showjumping and, most recently, our first arena eventing!

At the BRC dressage qualifiers we managed to qualify as an individual for the BRC National Championships in September! Showjumping has definitely been one of Sky’s favourites where we are now competing at 75/80 but out of everything the arena eventing was her favourite where she flew around the cross-country section almost with a smile on her face!

Recently we have also been training with Sir Lee Pearson, an 11 time Paralympic gold medallist, which has helped improve our dressage so much! At our most recent dressage competition we came away with a 1st and 2nd and our highest scores to date!

We can’t wait to get stuck into a summer full of Pony Club camp, training, competing and most important having lots of fun!
