Early starts – Charlotte Clewlow


In the first month of being sponsored by Rowen Barbary Horse Feeds I have been busy with all the horses, the first weekend involved two 4.30am alarm calls! (This is when I think I must be mad!)

I had a mixed weekend with all four horses getting sub 30 dressage scores. Tara was a superstar, getting a 29.5 dressage score and a double clear to finish in 6th place. Paddy did a fab dressage to score 22, and with just one pole show jumping and clear cross country we finished in 5th place. Bertie was fab with a 27 dressage score, clear show jumping and was storming round the cross country until the judge decided we had a hesitation! (feeling robbed)!! Dylan got a 27.5 dressage score with two poles show jumping and flew around the cross country course until we had a miscommunication that resulted in an unfortunate stop.

This was followed by a busy week of training, saddle fitters and the back man! I think my horses are living the dream!

Everyone had some Show Jumping training as all four horses were stepping up a class.






Stafford British Eventing was a busy event for me and one of debut’s, I am so gutted it is the last one as it is always such a well organised and well run event!

All four horses went clear cross country. It was Super Paddy’s debut at BE100 and he produce a double clear to finish on his dressage score of 31.5 and take 4th place.

Baby Tara was fantastic on her first British Eventing outing,  with a double clear to take 4th place in the hotly contested 4 year olds class.

Otto did his 2nd ever event and debut BE90, with a 27.8 dressage and just one rolled pole in the show jumping and a clear cross country.

Bertie debut was in BE100, he got a 30.5 dressage score but unfortunately although he jumped nicely he had 3 poles show jumping followed by a fab clear cross country.

I’m feeling very lucky to have the honor of riding such talented horses.

I have a very busy couple of weeks ahead as I am moving to a new yard in Tarporley, very excited as I will be leaving home and living on site – so can’t wait to look out the window and be able to see my horses in the field!
