Ali Benfield from our Stratford Lettings Team is proud mum to daughter Isabella who recently qualified for the Junior National RDA (Riding for Disabled) Championships.
Isabella has been riding since she was 4 years old and rides regularly at Rookery Farm stables in Ettington.
She and Henry, her trusty steed, were successful in the regional qualifiers in May and went on to compete at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire last weekend.
Isabella exceeded all expectations and achieved some outstanding results: she won First Prize in the Dressage, she was 5th in the Countryside Obstacle Event and finished a very impressive 2nd overall (by 0.25%!).
Bearing in mind she is only 10 and the upper age limit of the Junior section is 16 we think she has done amazingly well!
Isabella’s dream of reaching the Paralympics beckons!
