This year, she has her sites set on completing her first set of one day events on Woody, as well as continuing to improve her Prelim Dressage scores and possibly go affiliated for the first time ever!. Her equestrian style is simple, practical and smart, with a hint of fashion or bling here or there! Look to her for products that will last, can be used for a variety of things, or that improve the experience for your horse.
Anna Miller is a professional Dressage rider, trainer and para coach. She is successfully competing at Small Tour and has an exciting string of up and coming young horses to produce this year. Anna loves to teach, and coaches pupils from grass roots to international level across disciplines. She is Para dressage coach to Sophie Christiansen CBE, as well as, Jamie Winduss and Jemima Green who have recently been selected for the GB World Class program. She also helps some brilliant up and coming eventing and dressage combinations.
Her top horse Adonis B is a quirky character, who is notoriously naughty and spooky, he loves to work, despite thinking dressage should be an extreme sport! They are aiming for their first international competition together this year. Anna’s focus is on ethical and fair horsemanship, with the horses welfare at the centre of everything she does. She has a keen interest in equality and sustainability and is always looking for ways to make equestrian sport cleaner, greener and more accessible to all.
Formerly an event rider Anna has ditched the tweed and is slowly being converted to a little bit of bling!
Jennie Sharpe is an international showjumper and owner of JK Equestrian in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside. Jennie is UKCC Level 2 British Showjumping qualified for coaching, first aid trained, DBS checked and trained in safeguarding. With over 100 5* reviews and recommendations, it is safe to say all of Jennie's hard work is paying off!
In December 2018, Jennie suffered a life-changing injury and was diagnosed with Cauda Equina Syndrome. After major emergency spinal surgery, her L5/S1 vertebrate had collapsed and crushed her nerve canal, leaving Jennie with permanent damage and a new disability to come to terms with. Jennie was told she would never walk again unaided and definitely wouldn't ride again.
After three spinal surgeries and lots of fantastic support, Jennie is back on board and competing! Jennie is a firm believer in being kind, working hard and supporting everyone, no matter what level they may be.
Kim Chapman (also known as @kick.on.with.kim), is an amateur event rider based in Richmond, North Yorkshire with her 3 gorgeous horses: Indi, Brook and Ruby.
Indi is Kim's retired eventer who she has owned for an incredible 12 years. He took Kim through Pony Club, riding club then onto British Showjumping and British Eventing. Indi is certainly Kim's horse of a lifetime but in 2018, when his arthritis worsened, Kim made the difficult decision to retire him.
Brook is a 6 year old cheeky Connemara and he was a lockdown purchase in March 2020. He came over from Ireland a very weak 4 year old so Kim has taken the past few years to slowly produce him. Her main aim is to get him out to a few small unaffiliated competitions this year and just to have some fun.
Then there's Ruby - Kim's newest partnership. Ruby is an 8 year old, registered Irish Draught chestnut mare. They have only been a partnership since August 2021 but they are already getting out and about competing in British Showjumping and Riding Club competitions. Her main aim is to start competing at British Eventing competitions again this year, with the hope of moving up the levels, and also to qualify for the BRC National Championships.
