Jess Keeble-Jenkins and her horse Hard Target, otherwise known as ‘Alvin’, have been a successful partnership for many years. Having won and placed in some of the most prestigious events in Western Australia, they are a formidable pair in the eventing circuit. In this blog post, Jess shares the story of Alvin and how they came to form such a great partnership!
With a few new additions to the team, we have spent the beginning of the 2017 season building partnerships and training the youngsters. Eminence has started the season off well with two CNC*** starts and a CNC** where he has achieved improvements in his dressage phase at every start. We are excited to see him consolidate at CNC/CIC*** level during the second half of the season.
The team here at Sophie Warren Equestrian had a huge year in 2016. Dance Hall Diva stepped up at the beginning of the season to CNC* starting out with a bang by winning her first ever start at this level. Eminence also stepped up a level to CNC/CIC***, the highest level we have in this state, and Let’s Impress had his first run back at this level since 2013.
We are excited for our talented bunch of sponsored T&Rsponsored riders on their recent achievements. These elite riders feed their horses a range of T&R products... Which clearly seem to be working for their teams of horses!
What does a day in the life of sponsored rider Sophie Warren look like? Sophie Warren is one of WA’s top eventing riders. She is a dressage and jumping coach and runs a horse training business breaking in young horses and re-training problem behaviours. Sophie is proudly sponsored by Thompson and Redwood and all her horses are powered by T&R Clayton’s Pellets. More info on Sophie can be found at her website.What a year we’ve had so far! We’ve been flat out at home with horses in training and lessons, as well as taking the team all around the state for events. It makes for long days, and plenty of trips to the physio, but it’s totally worth it!
