Successful dressage and event rider, Lucy Robinson, is having a fantastic start to the season after taking the Regional Champion title at Bishop Burton in the Suregrow Elementary Freestyle Music Silver class.

Riding Jane Boothroyd’s homebred mare by Kyra Kirkland’s Master, Private Dancer V is a 16hh, 10-year-old mare. Known at home as Sara, Lucy and the mare have had huge success including two regional titles and last year she was crowned Northern Region Elementary Champion.

Based on the Staffordshire/ Derbyshire borders, Lucy helps run her family equestrian yard. Lucy started riding at a very young age, starting with showing then progressed to Pony Club where she has won many national titles for both dressage and eventing including winning the Open Eventing twice.

Lucy is now competing very successfully in the Under 21’s. She has three of her own event horses and competes a range of horses for owners from BE90 to 3 star level.

Lucy starting riding Jane’s dressage horses more than four years ago to help with the dressage phase of eventing. Jane needed help as she suffers from rheumatoid arthritis so although she enjoyed training the horses, competitions are a bit stressful.

Said Jane: “Lucy rode a calm, obedient test to a medley of Beatles music which suited the mare and impressed the judges.  Apart from lifting her front leg to salute the judges in the first halt, everything went according to plan and getting nearly all sevens which resulted in all the judges scoring the pair over 70%.

“It’s very exciting to win and qualify - I am going to have to cut my holiday short to take Lucy and Sara to Hartpury.”
