At the start of the 2019 season, we managed to catch up with MicroPerformance+ Show-Jumping Ambassador, Ruby Fryer and see what her plans are for another exciting year:
“With the end of last year being such a success with many wins and placings out in Oliva Nova, Spain, I have high hopes for this year too!
“I’m excited to be able to step all of my younger horses up an age group and be able to introduce four new 4 year olds and a 5 year old to my string!”
“My biggest hopes and plans for the year ahead have to lay with undoubtedly my best horse Hallmark. Now a seven year old I will be hoping to compete and replicate her 6 year old success in 7 year old classes both nationally and internationally!”
“Next week we head back to Oliva nova with four horses; 7 year old Hallmark, 6 year old Boss Z, 5 year old Jagger and 11 year old Didante.
All the young horses will jump the Young Horse 1* in their respective age group and I aim to take the time to produce them in the three weeks jumping out there to set them up for the season ahead. While with Didante I hope to have some fun on and be competitive in the 130/140m speed classes”
“I am super lucky to have been trusted to break in and produce four horses for Sophia Gracida and Ben Maher Stables. They are two four year old stallions; Clayton Z and Bliksem or Blinky for short! Then there is four year old Tilly and five year old Josie who is a late starter due to having a foal! All four horses are very cute and extremely talented and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to ride them all and get to be part of team Maher. These guys will tie in with my stallion Texas and would have all been to a show and ready to be turned away by the time we go to Spain. I’m excited to be able to jump so many talented young horses this year but I am conscious not to over do it with the babies so will only be jumping and aiming them at specific shows with 4 year old classes.”
“I also hope to do a bit more abroad at shows such as sentower park.
we have a busy season ahead with an exciting team of horses, but I am looking forward to continuing working with amazing owners and sponsors and hope to welcome more to our team to help us expand! I can’t wait to see all the hard work put in by the whole team surrounding me and the horses hopefully become apparent in our results!”
We are shall be monitoring Ruby and her horses this season, especially at the following events and looking forward to provide her and her horses with the marginal gains to succeed:
Second round shows at Pycombe (Brendon Stud) Arena uk,
Wales and west and Western Lawns
Bolesworth young horse show
