I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone by, I’ve done so much and achieved so many of my goals, it was even better to be able to share my journey with everyone at Likit.
The highlight of the year has been my inclusion on the Dutch Student Riding Squad. In September I had never ridden in one of these competitions and a year later not only have I ridden in 3 Nations Cups, but I have also been to the World University Championships! It has been an amazing experience not only have I had the chance to ride lovely horses, but I have also been able to meet so many people from all over the world. Most recently I was competing in Ireland and I managed to progress to the second round of dressage and the third round show jumping, leaving me 4th in the show jumping and 4th overall. The team almost had a clean sweep with Silver in the dressage and gold in the show jumping and overall. This has helped the Netherlands to top the leader board going into the World Finals at New Year, so fingers crossed for a good result!
My own horses have had a solid season and continue to make me smile. Pheobe has learnt the eventing game and now looks forward to the cross country. Despite Maria not being 100% last year and no expectations for this year, she has excelled and we have had our most successful season yet and are now aiming for our first CCI* at the end of September!
I just want to thank everyone at Likit for all of your support and generosity with your products. The horses have really enjoyed their supply and I think the promise of treats has definitely improved their performance, especially as Maria has begun to look for her treats when she jumps clear! I’ll continue to use your products and continue to promote them while out and about, looking forward to making Likit part of future successes. Here is a summary of my year:
