James Sommerville

Location:
Yorkshire

Rider:
Since starting his eventing career in 2002, James is now a full time international event rider with a string of horses coming through into the top level of the sport. Over the years he has gained a reputation for getting the best out of difficult/tricky to ride horses, making him an attractive choice of rider for prospective owners, and already has a large number of horses based with him.

Horse:
James’ top horse, Talent, is competing at Advanced level and is no stranger to the testing track at Bramham International Horse Trials. Now moving up towards 4* level, this pair are an exciting duo to watch. Also on the yard, James has a string of advanced, intermediate and novice horses which are showing a lot of promise for the future.


Feed & Routine:
James came across Fibre-Beet when looking for a feed to help keep condition on his top horse Talent as he would tend lose condition throughout the eventing season. Now all the horses are fed on Fibre-Beet for a high fibre conditioning diet which compliments their hard feed.

He is ridden six days a week; one of those days is usually a competition day. He is stabled at night but spends a few hours out grazing during the day.
