September progress

Following Phoebe's return from the European Championships in Maarsbergen, Holland, the Gold medal she won seems very much in the distant past. Her European Horse, Union Fortunus,  which she won Gold, Silver and Bronze medals on at the Junior and Young Rider European championships over the last four years, has now been sold. Therefore, through the later part of July and early part of August, she has been concentrating on her young horse Hipp DHI who she reports to be extremely pleased with his progress.

In August Team Locke took three horses to Harras du Pin, France.  All the horses competed in the four star class, with two of them, Pica D'OR and Bellagio completing their first four star events, with Phoebe. We are delighted to say that all the horses performed extremely well and Phoebe reported she was pleased with all the horses in all of the phases, especially with the XC being a very difficult technical track.

Last weekend Team Locke were at Gatcombe where Phoebe again was the star of the show, Wining the OI class on Pica D'OR on a dressage score of 26.4 and a fantastic double clear with one of the quickest times of the day on the XC course. She then rode a very nice round on her young French horse Bellagio, owned by PJA Capital, who she sets off with on Wednesday, to take to Blenheim International Horse Trials, where she will compete him in the prestigious 8/9 yr old four star class.

Finally to finish off a great weekend Ardeo Fun Size, owned by Eventing First Plc, came a brilliant third in the two star class, with a double clear round, finishing on his dressage score of 25.6, in an International field of over 110 competitors

We wish Phoebe and her Team all the best for Blenhiem and we will all be watching the livestream to cheer her on.

Team Gold for Saracen Horse Feeds Young Rider European Squad

An incredible finish to the European Championships in Maarsbergen for the Saracen Horse Feeds Young Rider Team who take home team gold, along with individual silver and bronze.

First up for the British team was Phoebe Locke and her own and Kate and Alan Powell's Union Fortunus who lead the team by example, producing the first clear round of the day inside the time.

The top three teams were Great Britain, France and the Netherlands. The British team led by 4.1 points to France and over 60 points to the Netherlands - a feat to be very proud of.

Huge congratulations to the Great Britain 'Young Rider Team' and Phoebe Locke. Phoebe, along with being the 2019 British Young Rider Champion has now crowned this amazing feat by being part of the G.B. team of four, who in breath-taking style took all the plaudits and European Gold, in Maarsbergen, Holland, last weekend.

A huge shoutout to the amazing 'Uni' - Mr Reliable. Union Fortunus and Phoebe have been a great team, but sadly Phoebe has agreed to sell him to new owners who see him as the perfect horse for their own daughter, who is also trying to follow in Phoebe's footsteps and become a recognised junior rider. 'Uni' goes with all our love and best wishes.
