Meet the SEIB Search for a Star riding club show horse finalists

The first of two riding club show horses tickets up for grabs at Wellington went to Gewluna, (pictured) owned and ridden by Heather Giles.

Heather has owned the 9-year-old grey mare for four years. They do a bit of everything including beach rides, dressage and hunt with the Vale of Aylesbury.

“We would like to breed from her eventually as she is such a good sort”, says Heather.

“Search For A Star is brilliant as it gives amateurs with horses like mine, a chance to qualify for HOYS and it is lovely that we can compete at a show of this level”.

Perdie Reid took the remaining ticket for this class with her 7 year old 17.2hh grey gelding, Blizzard III.

“He is so easy to do and a pleasure to take out”, says Perdie, who is helped by her mother at shows. “He won a ridden hunter class at a local show, but we didn’t know what he would make of this — he was brilliant!

“Getting to HOYS has been an eternal ambition of mine as I was never able to qualify for this show with my old working hunter, who is now 22,” said Perdie.
