We are pleased to announce that a local rider to the Belvoir Rug Company has joined our small team of Brand Ambassadors. Jasmine Smith approached us in 2016 to ask to be an Ambassador for us. She invited us to see her ride at an event, and having never met her before, we found her very passionate about her riding and Horses in general, and we loved her enthusiasm and determined nature. Jasmine has joined us for 2017 and will be flying the flag for us over the next 12 months. We are pleased that Jasmine has joined us, and we are happy to be able to support a young grass roots rider that has a determination and passion to be as successful as possible.
Jasmine tells you a little more about herself below;
I’m Jasmine, 23 and based in Leicestershire.
I have been riding since I could walk and for me it’s more than a hobby, it’s a passion & a way of life. My Mum has always been my biggest supporter and having show jumped successfully herself, It was inevitable that I would pick up the reins too.
I compete in most equestrian disciplines but my passion really is for showing & working hunter. I compete mainly in the East Midlands region at county level, alongside working full time in the mortgage industry.
I ride/own various types of ponies, mainly native breeds as they are more versatile as they can compete in both plaited & Mountain and Moorland classes. I enjoy producing youngsters and seeing them improve – winning on a made horse is no where near as satisfying as winning on a horse you’ve produced yourself. My aims are to compete at HOYs & The Royal International at Hickstead in 2017, we have attended a few qualifiers already this year & the ponies continue to improve, so with dedication and positivity, my goals could be in reach.
I have a blog of my own which i regularly update. www.connieconquest.co.uk
