Chloe Milne Wins Suregrow Elementary Silver Freestyle at Morris Equestrian Centre
Categories: None | Tags: None
Dressage rider Chloe Milne, has qualified for the prestigious British Dressage Winter Championships.
24-year-old Chloe and Cremmdalla Crem took the Suregrow Fertiliser Winter Elementary Freestyle Regional Silver Champion title on a well-deserved score of almost 72% at Morris Equestrian Centre.
Cremmdalla Crem known as Dory at home, is a 16.3hh rising 9-year-old bright bay Holsteiner. Chloe bought her as a just backed, very sharp green 4-year-old project pony with the intention to bring on and sell.
It took Chloe a year just to be able to stay on Dory’s back without her going through her manners, a lot of hard work and patience has gone into their partnership. Five years down the line and Chloe still has her project pony and wouldn’t sell her for the world.
Chloe said: “Dory’s party trick is seeing how long she can stay on her two hind legs, she usually likes to show everyone when we are warming up for competitions!”
The duo have had many wins over the past couple of years, from BRC National Novice Champions 2017, Scottish Elementary Bronze Champion 2017, being part of the winning team at Byrd’s home International 2017 and being part of the winning team at Sheepgate Under 25 Championships in 2017 to list a few.
The pair were placed fifth at the Nationals Elementary Bronze, Elementary Open Freestyle Champion at Sheepgate 2018 and most recently double Regional Champion at Morris Equestrian Centre winning both Freestyle and the Elementary Straight class.
Based in Bonnybridge central Scotland Chloe lives on her yard, Woodchip Stables.
Chloe has been riding since she was six-years-old and first starting competing at British Dressage when she was 18-years-old.
Chloe said: “It was the best feeling ever finding out I had won with an overall score of almost 72% with one judge awarding us an amazing 76%.
“I had never competed at regional finals before so to win both the classes is overwhelmingly fantastic. I’m so proud of how my girl went, she is not the easiest horse to train and compete but she took everything in her stride and was on her best behaviour.
“I cannot wait for Harpury.”
Said Jonathan Cox of Suregrow Fertiliser: “A very well done to Chloe and Cremdalla Crem, a brilliant result.”
