Olivia Bennett age 10, a pupil at St. Dominic’s Priory School Stone, has enjoyed an incredible year with her show pony Anndalyse Sugar Plum, aka “Minnie.”
2016 started for the pair with a Championship win in Hereford where they qualified for The Royal International Horse Show, Hickstead. Further wins followed in Cumbria and a very prestigious win and Reserve Champion at Royal Windsor.
In June the qualifiers begin for Horse of the Year Show in October. Olivia and “Minnie” qualified six times in all with wins including Mid Herts County, Stoneleigh and British Show Pony Society Championship near Peterbourgh, culminating in the prize of all prizes – winning her class at Horse of the Year Show gaining the title of First Ridden Pony of the Year.
It is truly what dreams are made of.
A very big thank you to their production guys – Team Carter and Wetley Rocks – and to Katy Carter for her superb training and attention to detail.
“Minnie “ has now moved on to another little girl in Sussex. Olivia and her family are looking forward to 2017 with two new 12.2hh show ponies.
