Willa Newton finishes the 2018 season ranked 30 in the British Eventing Rider league and her top ride, Chance Remark, ranked as the 12th top rated horse in the UK.
“I am hugely excited to be in the top 30 riders within British Eventing, of course it is disappointing to be lower than last year but considering the circumstances I am very happy and I couldn’t be prouder of Chance Remark. Austen has had an amazing year finishing in the top 10 in two four stars as well as winning an advanced! I feel very lucky and am hugely grateful to his owners Feena Machin and Peter Thomas who are incredibly supportive and have allowed me this opportunity.
“Missing some important events through injury was difficult and frustrating but the horses all coped well and finished off their respective seasons well. I am hugely excited about 2019 already and I feel we have some very exciting horses to campaign. A huge thank you to my whole team, owners, sponsors and home team who allow it all to happen, ends Willa.
