Abi is a 24 year old event rider based in Staffordshire. Abi’s equine career began in showing, competing in working hunter pony classes and in 2014 going onto win WHP Champion. In 2011 Abi began focusing on Eventing with her top horse Tilston Tic Toc who would go on to prove to be her horse of a lifetime. Tilston Tic Toc & Abi’s journey together has been full of highlights having been long listed for numerous British Teams and completing their first 3* when Abi was impressively only 18.
Five years on from their first event and the two have made their way up the grades completing their first CCI4* together at The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials in 2015 when Abi was just 20 years of age.
I first met Abi and her father at Barbury Horse Trials in 2015 when they came to buy matching belts in Abi’s infamous Tic Toc team colours, Aqua and Navy. Six months on and her belt having accompanied her around some of Britain’s most prestigious events in one piece, our sponsorship began and three years later we continue to work together.
Chuffy is a 24 year old Event rider based in Dorking, Surrey. Chuffy’s British Eventing career kicked off when she was just 13 representing the South East on the junior squad. This was just the start of team appearances for Chuffy. Having come runner up and the U18 National Championships at Houghton in 2012, Chuffy was then selected to represent Great Britain at the Junior Europeans that year.
Chuffy’s competitive success has continued ever since, completing her first 3* in 2017 finishing 9th on her top horse Second Supreme. The pair then went on to finish 8th in the Event Rider Master Class at Blair Castle and in 2018 were selected for Chuffy’s first Senior British team in the Nations Cup.
I first met Chuffy at Houghton Horse Trials in 2015 where she purchased a snaffle clasp belt for the trot up, we have collaborated ever since and decided to make the sponsorship official in the summer of 2018.
Rob is a 25 year old Dressage rider based in Gloucestershire. Having always had a strong passion for horses and an undeniable talent, Rob at 16 headed to Hartpury college to continue his education whilst still concentrating on his competitive career which initially began in Eventing. Rob competed successfully on a number of horses, a highlight being qualifying at 3* level.
Throughout this time having been approached by Carl Hester to ride some of his younger horses and Rob’s passion for dressage becoming more apparent, he in 2016 chose to hang up his jumping boots to concentrate purely on Dressage. Rob has continued to build a strong team of horses and continues to ride for both Carl and Charlotte Dujardin where you will come across him taking part in many demos with them.
In 2018 Rob had a fantastic year, with highlights including Charlotte Dujardin’s River Rise Isabella winning the 5yo semi-final at Hartpury and Chloe Walton’s Fidelious winning the Elementary at the National Championships with Woodlander Romance taking second spot.
Rob and I grew up together hunting and competing on riding club teams before we both moved across the country to study at Hartpury College. I have proudly sponsored Rob since I set Dalton’s up in 2014.
