The accepted entry list has been announced for the 2017 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials and the Woof Wear ladies are on it!
After having to retire during the cross country phase of last year's event, Guy Avis's talented mare KBIS Briarlands Matilda will be back to tackle Eric Winter's 2017 course with our modern day superwoman Izzy Taylor.
Team Taylor are often seen with 8 or 9 horses competiting at each event, so the Badminton weekend will be a little different for them.
Every superhero needs a sidekick and Izzy Taylor is no different - her incredibly loyal and hardworking head groom Anna Mildner was deservedly awarded the Treehouse Sporting Colours 'top groom' award at the 2016 event - with the stable manager noting that "Izzy's horses are always turned out impecably and it's down to Anna's hard work and attention to detail."
Wiltshire based Olympian Kitty King, has entered her handsome Rio ride Ceylor LAN, who is having a fantastic start to his 2017 season with a win in the AI at Lincoln and a second to Sir Mark Todd in the AI at Tweseldown.
Since his Olympic debut last summer Ceylor LAN has returned from his winter break having matured physically and mentally, with both he and Kitty learning a tremendous amount in Rio as their start to the season has showed.
The team here at Woof Wear would like to wish both Kitty and Izzy the best of luck for their upcoming events and of course a safe and sucessful Badminton weekend - we will be there cheering you on!
