We are very proud to have agreed to support a wonderful Eventing Rider, Flora Young and engage her as our newest Brand Ambassador. Flora has been in close contact with us for a few months and she is a great asset to our team, fitting in really well with us all. Flora has written a short Bio for us to share;
Hi, I’m Flora Young, a 22 year old Event Rider based in Lincolnshire. I knew from an early age that wanted to peruse a career in Equine sport, a career path that would combine my passion and talent. I represented the Pony Club at National Championships before graduating onto horses that I produced myself. This included Country Bumpkin, a 4yr old i brought through the ranks of PC Eventing up to Advanced and eventually had success at CCI2* and CIC2* level.
At 16 I worked full time, and invested my time working for Tiny Clapham and Andrew Fletcher producing quality horses for all spheres of competition and learning my trade. With hard work, determination and talent learned in horsemanship I developed and flourished, and this led to me successfully producing and competing with showjumper Halo Diamond to Foxhunter level for his owner. I have ridden many other horses professionally to a high level and am quite well-known for my ability to get the best out of tricky horses.
Fully aware of the challenges that pursuing this career path in Equestrian raises, I worked diligently to establish a foothold in this highly competitive field. Recently relocating her existing string of young horses from the family stables to a yard in Lincolnshire I have benefited from the availability of established facilities that were not available at home.
My next challenge is to bring on my young horses and potentially add to the team in order to establish a strong foundation for a successful and competitive career at the highest levels of the sport.
