Bella Fricker

Endurance Rider from Milton Keynes

Most Memorable Horse/Pony : Polly 1, she is owned by my grandmother but I have been her sole trainer and rider in the main and we have completed 1600km together.

Best Result To Date: I competed my first CEI120km** at Kings Forest at the end of May which has to be my best result to date and this year I would really love to do another 120km.

Aims For The Future : I would love to represent Great Britain at a WEG, whether that’s 2018, 2022 or even 2026 I’ll get there!


Geared up for the season ahead – Bella Fricker


January seemed like a slow month. I decided on which saddle I wanted to buy for Chip but then of course had to wait for it to be made. Then Chip managed to get an infection on his leg, which whilst he was sound, meant no work and a trip to the vets for a […]


Excited – Bella Fricker


So the 2016 calendar has been finalised…excited muchly! March is set to be seriously busy, with a ride planned for every single weekend. The observant of you may have noticed that Chip is sporting a beautiful purple bandage…somehow he managed to get a foreign body of some kind just on the top of his fetlock, […]


Does the season ever really end? – Bella Fricker


Well it’s been a while since I last did a blog, mostly because it’s been the end of the season and we’re supposed to be on down time! It doesn’t feel like I’ve stopped yet though to be honest! I’ve taken Chip to a few pleasure/training rides which I’m using for canter work as the […]


October, the best month of the season – Bella Fricker


Despite there only being two weekends of the endurance season to compete in October, those two weekends were unforgettable! I travelled with the Development Squad to Madine, France, to compete in the CEIYJ2* 120km on the 3rd October riding the lovely Eskar, owned by Kirsty Wiscombe. This was my first time competing in France, my […]


Highs and lows, but mostly highs! – Bella Fricker


Since the last blog I’ve been out and about quite a bit. Mid-August saw me complete another 80km at Cranwich, Suffolk riding a horse I’d not competed on before, Yawl Hill Pollyana. She gave me such an easy ride I felt like we’d hardly been anywhere! We finished with a Grade 2 and took 4th […]


So busy! – Bella Fricker


July and August have just been so busy! Most people in the endurance circuit will be aware that I spent the entirety of July, and what felt like full-time hours organising Hanslope, an FEI 2* endurance ride. Hanslope had four international classes as well as several national race ride classes, graded classes and pleasure classes. […]


Bella Fricker – #RBTeam


I would like to start my first blog by saying a massive thank you to #RBTeam for sponsoring me for the year! I started endurance six years ago, but have been crewing since I was able to carry a slosh bottle for my grandmother who still competes now. I would suggest to anyone that wants […]
