Charlotte Thomas née Fill

Dressage Rider From Shropshire

Most Memorable Horse/Pony : My most memorable horse has to be Stanhopes Odwig or Wiggy as he was known at home, sadly we lost him to a field accident. I rode my first PSG and Inter1 on Wiggy and we had many wins together.

Achievements To Date: British Junior European Team Member / Pony and Junior Internationals / World Class Start Programme / Junior and Pony Dressage Squads / Competed at Regionals and Nationals / National Pony Club Dressage Champion.

Top Tip : If you have started your schooling session and feel things aren’t going right, or you can see yourself not getting anywhere….. Just stop and remind yourself of a time when you were in that perfect frame of mind, go back in your mind and see what you saw, hear what you heard and feel what you felt. Then you can carry on in your ideal frame of mind!

Fantastic Regionals For My Clients – Charlotte Fill


2015 has just been the most incredible year for me so far. July was more about my clients and their prep for the regionals at Somerford. Helping them I remember how I used to feel in the run up to a big show, and success is often down to who is in control of their […]
