DRESSAGE

 Jamie Broom

Jamie Broom is a British Dressage Rider and current National Medium Champion in the sport of Dressage. He runs Lakeside Equestrian Centre, a livery and training centre near Windsor with his wife, Georgi and his family.


In autumn of 2014, Jamie and Georgi acquired a horse named Tigger (Furst Impression).  Their original goal was simply to take their time with him so that he would progress onto being a happy and rideable horse that was secure in his forever home.   Over time, Tigger formed a partnership with Jamie that is now apparent to anyone who watches him.  The more he worked and learnt, the happier he became and the more his cheeky character showed.   Show Jumping, despite being Jamie’s initial passion was not to be – as Tigger’s jump was so powerful it was difficult to sit on, literally!   After a particularly spectacular and unintended dismount, it was decided that jumping was not for him!  Unbeknownst to all at that time, Tigger and Jamie’s dressage journey had inadvertently begun. Jamie’s dressage career continued to go from strength to strength and in just over 18 months, he won 22 of 29 dressage tests, including the Championships, moving from Novice to now Advanced Medium in that timescale, therefore achieving two Regional Titles, one National Title and one Nationals placing – 4th. Recently, Jamie won with Tiger the Advanced Medium 98 at Merrist Wood with a great score of 77%.
Jamie describes Tigger as a “hot horse with a great sense of humour. His intelligence is such that he learns very quickly. He’s a horse that you have ride skilfully and with experience, as to manage a delicate balance of negotiating and never telling. 


Jamie and Georgi’s other horses include Ziva (Furst Insperation) and Rockstar (Furst In Line), all out of the same lines of Furst Heinrich, Tigger’s sire. Ziva, 6, has just starting competing and stands at 17’2hh. Rockstar, 7, is a new arrival and an exciting prospect as Jamie starts his training and gets to know him. As well as training, riding and competing their own horses, Jamie and Georgi run a very successful livery yard, teaching and riding for other horse owners, hosting competitions and regularly running clinics covering all the equestrian disciplines with a variety of trainers, including Charlotte Dujardin. 

 Holly Kerslake

Holly Kerslake sponsored dressage rider for Eqclusive

Holly Kerslake is a 13 year old International pony dressage rider. She is currently on the GB Pony Prime Squad with my Welsh Cob stallion Valhallas Zorro.

Zorro was imported from Denmark last March and this year is their first season competing at Premier League PFEI level. She also has another Pony Stallion who is a German Riding Pony called Platinum Honeys Hope aka Harry. Harry who is owned by Louise Davies and Holly came to stable last October so they now have spent the Winter training and forming a partnership and they are hoping for our FEI debut later this year.

She is very lucky to have 2 amazing trainers, John Chubb and our nations own golden girl Charlotte Dujardin. She first started training with Charlotte when she was just 8, they have come a long way since then :)

Holly commented: "I am so excited to be sponsored by Eqclusive, both my boys are very dirty, stallions naturally tend to produce more grease in their coat, since using Eqclusive brushes my life has become so much easier as their coats stay so much cleaner and my boys looks amazing!"

Ella Vincent

"Ella has been hooked on riding ever since she can remember. Following nearly ten years of riding cheeky ponies who had no intention of doing what they were told, Ella came across Socks, a five year-old 14hh mare. Ella, as a thirteen year old, self-produced Socks off grass, without an arena. They had many successes together, from being placed in their first BE together, representing the Pony Club several times and winning in showjumping. Ella was the last person to admit that she'd hopelessly outgrown Socks in 2015, but she was very grateful for the experience she'd gained.

After this small taste of success, Ella became even more driven to succeed in the eventing-world and set up a blog, called eveventing. Combining her love of writing and riding, she writes reviews, accounts of her days competing and opinion articles, as well as keeping her followers updated with the ups and downs of being a teenage event rider with limited facilities (but with some amazing hacking). 

History repeated itself in November 2015, where Ella bought her young horse Kings Ceilidh, who had never seen a jump in her life but had well-established basics. After introducing Ceilidh to jumping last year, Ella and Ceilidh were placed in all three classes at their first showjumping last year, placed in first working hunter, clear around their first hunter trials as well as qualifying for the PC Dengie Dressage Area Finals last winter. Ceilidh's still very much work in progress, but Ella is standing in good steed to unveil her potential throughout this event season with such generous support from her team."

 

SHOW JUMPING

 Grace Wallace

Grace Wallace sponsored show jumping rider for Eqclusive

Grace's passion for showjumping started when she was just 10 years old, when she acquired her first pony to teach her to jump. Grace registered BSJA and came 3rd place in her first show, which was a 75cm class. Needless to say, from there her love for showjumping continued to blossom. In 2012, Grace her first horse, Zonia, to teach her the ropes of showjumping and progress onto bigger tracks. They became the best of partnerships, winning at a national level and competing at almost every showjumping championship there is. 'Zoe' is unbeatable against the clock and her results speak for themselves, with double clears and wins up to 1.30m level. Sadly, in 2014 Zoe suffered a tendon injury on the flat at home, which meant she needed six months box rest and potentially would never jump again. However, Grace persevered and gave her the best care possible. Much to the amazement of the vets and themselves, Zoe made a full recovery and came back even better, having a fantastic two seasons since which much still left to give. Grace got her other horse Ilena VD Bisschop (Lena) in May last year, who is a lovely Belgian Warmblood mare. Lena is one of the sweetest horses on the ground and gives her absolute everything when jumping. Since having her, Grace has jumped many classes up to 1.30m level and this year she has qualified for the Blue Chip Championships by winning the qualifier. Finally, Grace's newest horse is Iris IV, who she has only had since this January this year. Iris is a very sweet 17.1hh grey mare, who Grace is hoping is going to step her up to some bigger tracks. In the short time Grace has had her, she is proving a real winner, placing at every show and qualifying for the Blue Chip Championships in the first week Grace had her. Grace is very excited to see how their partnership develops and is looking forward to the year ahead. For 2017, Grace is looking forward to jumping some international and young rider classes this year with her fantastic team, with the hope of qualifying for several national championships.
