Here at In The Saddle we’re super excited to introduce to you our new sponsored rider, Rosie Warner. Rosie is a local young event rider with big ambitions & we’re really looking forward to supporting her. In this post, Rosie tells us a little about herself, her ambitions and of course her horses.
Rosie says, “I am a 23 year old event rider, with an Equine Business Diploma from Hartpury College and an Equine Work-based Diploma through Warwickshire college.
I am extremely dedicated, hard working and committed to becoming a successful event rider. I would love to reach the top level of eventing with my string of home-bred horses. I do compete British Showjumping and British Dressage throughout the year, but eventing is my ultimate passion.
My top horse is Cult Legend, a 16.1hh bay gelding by Cult Hero. He’s currently competing at intermediate/2* and together we will be aiming for Advanced towards the end of the season. Cult legend, stable name ‘Aemon’, is a very experienced genuine horse and we have built a great partnership over the last 5 years. He is a very gentle, laid-back character who is super easy to have around.
I also have a 5 year old Irish Sports Horse purchased from Gorsebridge sales last Autumn. He’s a very exciting prospect and I’m really looking forward to producing him through the levels. Ars Big Time, stable name ‘Milo’ is a gorgeous bay gelding by Ars Vivendi. Milo is extremely bold and has a fabulous scopey jump. He was just backed when I purchased him so I am producing him slowly and carefully as I believe he is a potential top class event horse.
The final member of my competitive string of horses this season is Romeo, or ‘Finest Star’, a 4 year-old chestnut gelding by Wish Upon a Star out of Much of a Muddle, our elite graded broodmare (also the dam of Louise Harwood’s 4* eventer Mr Potts). Romeo was backed last autumn and will start lightly competing this summer. Romeo has got to be one of the most promising horses I have ever sat on; the fact that he’s home-bred makes it even more exciting! Romeo has excellent conformation, elastic natural paces and a serious jump…he is also a bit of a charmer!
I have four more home-breds ranging from yearlings to 3 year-olds that all look to be very promising so far. One of my 2 year-olds is by the well known stallion Chilli Morning.
I am so delighted to have the opportunity of becoming an ‘In The Saddle‘ sponsored rider. The support means a huge amount to me and I am extremely grateful for this opportunity”.
Thank you Rosie. It is great to hear all about your lovely horses and we wish you the best for the remainder of the season.
We shall look forward to hearing about Rosie’s progress and we will keep you updated with how she gets on in the coming months.
