Dressage rider Anna Ross Davies takes over the lease on her first yard next month – at Cholderton House near Salisbury, Wiltshire.
Anna will be developing it as a venue for unaffiliated and British Dressage shows.
“I have been like orphan Annie until now,” Anna told H&H. “I finally feel like a proper dressage rider.”
The yard has previously been the base for Mark Todd and Ferdi Eilberg.
Anna and the 18 horses she has on training liveries, have been based at Cholderton since June, but she is poised to take over the lease from rider Shane Reilly, who has returned to Australia.
Cholderton boasts a 70 x 25m indoor school, with seating for 200, and a 30 x 50m outdoor school in a walled garden.
“It is a beautiful yard with fabulous facilities,” said Anna.
The first unaffiliated show takes place on 26 February and will be running fortnightly from then onwards.
