We are so fortunate to have a wonderful team of riders competing across a range of disciplines.
Alicia Berger - Dressage, USA
Alicia began a decade ago with English pleasure, western, and even barrel riding. However, a few years ago she found her passion, dressage. Since then Alicia has competed in numerous competitions, earning over 50 first place ribbons and eight high point ribbons. Lastly year she earned 6th place at the regional competition. Alicia also won 8 grand champion titles at the 2019 Friesian world competition.
Chantelle Oliver-Symonds - Dressage, UK
Stadmorslow Coffee n Cream (Harvey) is a 15hh, 15yo Appaloosa x Welsh D gelding who Chantelle bought in 2010 as a happy hacker. After trying some low level eventing they turned their attention to dressage in 2012 and have since gone from Prelim to Advanced competing at six Area Festival Championships, three Winter Championships and been on four Home International teams. Their aims for the coming year include the Winter Regionals at Medium, Area Festivals at Adv-Medium and to gain a qualifying score to compete at PSG.
Chloe has a passion for the art of side saddle riding and together her and Bertie (aka The Cow Pony as he is fondly known as) have been competing side saddle for the last few years. They are now at the highest level of the sport with achievements including:
In 2015 Chloe and Bertie were selected as part of the British side saddle team for the opening ceremony of the FEI European Games at Aachen, Germany. The pair have also performed at Blenheim International Horse Trails for a number of years, showcasing the stunning art of side saddle.
Sadly, the wonderful 'Cow Pony' has been retired from competiton, and Chloe's youngster Marley is now her main focus. This year they have competed in the 'Cotswold Cup' eventing series, qualifying for the championships at Gatcombe where they came an incredible 5th!
Marley has also been introduced to the world of side saddle and we cannot wait to see their journey together.
