Horse-Powered are proud to annouce that we will be sponsoring Abi Gant and Scarlette who are competing in British Showjumping championships! Find out what Abi says below..
“So I met Scarlette back in January 2016 when I was looking for a new horse. As soon as I saw her on the yard where she was living at I deep down knew she could be the one. Shes a 9yr dark bay Grade C German Warmblood mare approx 16hh and is a Showjumper. We have recently started British Showjumping though Scarls already has a BS record of 228 points and are looking to do my first big show at the Aylsham Show at the end of August. Though Scarlette is manly a showjumper she also does very well at cross counrty and jumpcross having won many rosettes and being the end of season winner for our class last year.”
Wow what an inspiration! Good luck from all of us at Horse-Powered!
So let me start off my first blog post about my own horse as inspiration. I never intended on becoming a horse owner. I am in fact a petrol head who used to be a horse owner when I was younger. I spent some time to get to know a wonderful woman by chance who became a really good friend. I helped her with her horses each week and this meant that I came across Lad a Pacer who had been rescued from travelers and a heap of nasty abuse. He was a very broken little pony who had never been ridden before. I took the time and the patience to work with him slowly, built him up to being ridden, hacked out, schooled and more recently stopped him from ‘pacing’ (this is a fast trot they used to do with him in a single cart on the roads). We have since in around 5 months learnt how to do canter too. If it was any other horse I do not think I would have become a horse owner. It has inspired me to use my skills to come up with this blog and website for bespoke clothing. I hope you enjoy it and enjoy hearing more about Lad and our progress together.
