Sponsorship Announcement

We are excited to officially announce our sponsorship of up-and-coming dressage rider Laura Strawbridge.

Laura is a member of British Dressage and has progressed from BYRDS into seniors representing, Devon, the South West and then England at the Home International for the last three years. In 2015 she was Home International Individual Elementary Champion in her first season with Extasia. So far this season, Laura and Extasia have achieved four +70% scores at the Winter Regional Champs, qualifying for the Nationals in both the Elementary Open and the Novice Freestyle open at the Winter National Championships where they narrowly missed the top ten, coming 11th. They are now out and about competing at Medium and are qualified for the 2016's Summer Regional Championships intending to go Advanced Medium later this year.

With Alfie (TullyReavy Prince Jones) she was Medium Champion at the South West Petplan Area Festival Regional Championships in 2014. Alfie has just recovered from a tendon injury and is regaining strength & fitness doing some Elementary tests having also qualified for the Summer Regionals this year. Laura hopes to have Alfie ready to go back up to Medium by the Autumn.

Laura trains regularly with Conrad Schumacher at the Half Moon Stud in Dorset, and aims are to progress through the levels to be in a position to apply for the World Class programme when applications open again in 2018 with Extasia. She intends to achieve her top hat and tails and compete internationally in the future, and we are looking forward to supporting Laura throughout this exciting time in her dressage career.

Laura will be keeping us updated on her achievements and training as well as helpful tips and advice she has learnt along the way. To keep updated, please follow us on our Facebook Page.
