Mary King's season finishes

After a busy season we caught up with Nedz sponsored rider Mary King for a quick update…

“Gatcombe and South of England Horse Trials, the last 2 one-day-events of the year for me, went very well with Jay and Chubby being well placed in the Open Intermediate sections at both events. Unfortunately Chubby’s trip to France was disappointing, with him not feeling himself across country which resulted in us retiring early on the course. However, Emily had a great end to her season at Weston Park CCI finishing 2nd in the CCI* on Zara and 2nd in the CCI YR** with Brookleigh. And to top it all she was crowned the U21 National Champion! We have found a single buyer for Brook which is wonderful, and a huge relief for Emily to be able to maintain the ride on him.”

“Now the season is finished Emily has gone to work for Ben Maher for a month, and then will go on to the Eilbergs. After Christmas she is spending a month in Florida working for top US showjumper Lauren Hoff.” 

“I am breaking in 3 of my homebreds at the moment and so far so good! During this last week I have done 2 full days teaching in the north of England, and 4 after dinner talks, plus 2 meetings! What a lot of talking, but fun to keep busy!”
