Our Rider Phoebe Locke has three in the top 10 at Oasby.

Phoebe had a super day at Oasby where she dominated the young rider open intermediate under 21, section with three of her horses inside the top ten. Union Fortunus won the class on a impressive score of 25.7 after a foot perfect show jumping and cross country round. Phoebe who was featured in the Horse and Hound for her outstanding performance commented. " It was Uni's first run of the season and he comes out better every year " . She also finished third with last years Bicton CIC* Winner Russal Z and eighth with the talented french horse Pica D'Or.  All the team at ESM are super pleased and what a great start to the season. " Well done Team Locke "
