Tilly is a seven-year-old cob who loves to be out and about and meeting people. Tilly loves to go jumping now she has gained her confidence, even if she is a bit clumsy! We are looking forward to competing in our first one day event this summer.Our activities include a bit of everything, but this year we have really got into our side saddle riding and are hoping to compete at the National Side Saddle Show this summer. We take part in historical cavalry displays, from the English Civil War, to Victorian side saddle and First World War, during the summer months.
I have owned Tilly since she was a virtually unbroken four-year-old, and we have a great relationship built on trust, she is a pleasure to own.
However, Tilly is very cheeky and loves to stick her nose into people’s bags at our historical events, where she gets up close and personal with the public.
Coming 4th in my first side saddle show and qualifying for the master class.
Feed & Routine:
Tilly is fed twice a day on Fibre-Beet with an added feed balancer. Tilly is ridden three or four times a week in the summer as she is a good doer and needs plenty of exercise to keep her weight down. During the winter she is only ridden two or three times a week. We try to be out competing, or at events, most weekends during the summer. She lives out in summer and is on a hard standing area with access to stables and shelter during the winter.
