Willa notched up another Top 10 international finish at the Blenheim International Horse Trials earlier this month, riding Moonlight Dance S to finish 9th in this prestigious event, won this year by Laura Collett.
Having finished down the field in this event last year, The now 9yo mare (Moonlight Dance S) came into the event this year with more experience and some consistent results in the run up so far.
“Dancer has felt so much stronger, calmer and confident this year and didn’t disappoint. She put in a good dressage score of 29.5 and a lovely clear within the time cross country. Frustratingly, rider error resulted in an expensive pole down in the Showjumping,” explains Willa.
“She is definitely a special horse and I am very much looking forward to her first CCI*** at Boekelo at the end of the month,”she added.
This latest Blenheim result follows Top 10 placings at two 4 star events earlier this season with Chance Remark who finished 5th at Luhmuhlen and 8th at Burghley.
