Harry Greaves  Jumping Rider

Starting at the age of six, Harry began his career on his first pony Sunny. He was then given the "jumping machine" Master Benson with whom he competed very successfully at various events.

Benson is now 23 years old but is still fit and seems to enjoy nothing more than being in the spotlight of competition, indeed he was Harry's partner this Jue at the BRC's Festival of the Hunter held at Aston le Walls where the were in the team that came second, but gradually Benson will more on to his well-deserved retirement.

Harry's young mare Melody has come on incredibly well over the last few months. Melody is now about to move up to JC and having taken a chance on taking her on the long trek from Cornwall to Pony Of The Year (POYS) she repaid his trust with a very credible 14th place in the small Grand Prix. In August Harry was back at Aston le Walls this time with Melody at the BRC finals of the Junior Novice Horse Trials coming 9th. Melody and Harry have just won their first Junior Foxhunter class, so an exciting winter in prospect with BSJA show jumping!

Alongside the show jumping, Harry has started Eventing and has been lucky enough to be able to compete on a super young pony Talihli Sundancer (Tilly) from the TB Equestrian yard near Bodmin. It is still early days for Harry at BE level but with some intensive training from Trilby at TB Equestrian the combination finished the season well, being placed at BE90 at both Hatherleight and Larkhill horse trials. Harry is also intending to take Tilly BSJA show jumping this winter.

Kitty King   Event Rider
kittyboggis.com

Kitty sat on her first pony at only 2 weeks old and then began riding regularly as soon as she could walk. She was only two years old when she was able to do rising trot. Kitty’s first pony was called ‘Bambi’ but it was ‘Glasgow Flyer’ and ‘Red Alert’ who took her through the Pony Europeans and Young Rider teams. With Red Alert, Kitty came 9th individually and gained team Silver at the Pony Europeans and Glasgow Flyer took her to the Junior Regional Novice and her first affiliated intermediate event. Kitty then gained the ride on ‘Leading Edge’ who was placed in Novice and they then won their first Intermediate at Gatcombe. Kitty and Leading Edge then gained their places on the Junior team in 2000 where they won team silver and were 4th individually, being best of the British entries.

At the beginning of 2001, Kitty was offered the ride on ‘Five Boys’ and they did their first Pre–Novice as soon as the Foot and Mouth crisis had subsided. In 2002, Kitty and Five Boys (‘Molly’), won Punchestown 2* and then gained a place in the Young Rider team where they won team silver and were 11th overall. In 2003, Five boys came second at Bramham CCI *** where they became the National Under 25 Champions. They made it on to the Young Rider team again where they won team gold and were 4th individually. In 2005 they completed their first Badminton where they came 7th, awarding them a place on the Senior squad for the European Championships at Blenheim. Kitty is the only rider to have gained all four ‘flags’ by being in Pony, Junior, Young Rider and Senior teams.

Kitty lives at home with her incredibly sporty family and is supported by her mother Jane, Holly Bradshaw and Sam Taylor. Team Boggis’ is also ably assisted by Haggis, the lurcher, a horse trials favourite!

   Tamsyn Hutchins

 
Event Rider

Tamsyn started riding on a Shetland Pony at the tender age of five. Her first ambitions were in Show Jumping and she even went to Horse of the Year Show at Wembley several times.

Soon however, Tamsyn discovered her passion - and talent - For Eventing which got rewarded with team bronze at the Pony Europeans with "Harry Hot Shot' and the Junior Europeans with 'Tully Lane'. In order to pursue her passion Tamsyn has spent many hours on the road; so far she has travelled to Germany, Spain, the Czech Republic, and Ital to name just a few.

Unfortunately Tamsyn has had very luck in the past when she lost four horses due to illnesses and injuries in only one year. She also had two horses selected for the Young Rider team but unfortunately did not get the chance to go. Thanks to her determination and great support from her team and family - including Jack Russels Rocky and Russell - Tamsyn is now back on her feet and building up a string of horses to compete at high level again.

The most advanced horses at her yarn near Looe in Cornwall are Badger Best, Drama Queen (stable name 'Zara') and Quick Drown Fox. Waiting in the second row are 8-year-old Archidamus (also called the 'Flying Sofa') who is currently competing at 2* as well as many promising youngsters.

When she is not on horseback, Tamsyn likes to get competitive playing netball or swimming and also keeps fit by going to the gym. For 2011 Tamsyn has set her rights on Badminton and Burghley for the advanced horses and Blenheim for Quick Brown Fox and Drama Queen who had a foal recently and is now getting back on track to compete at 3* events again. In preparation for the Eventing season in the UK team Hutchins headed to Portugal with four horses in February in order to comete at Vale Sabroso*/** and Barocca*/**/***

We are excited to be involved with this young dynamic team and look forward to watching their progress in the feature.

World Class Development
www.bef.co.uk


The World Class Development Programme is Lottery and Exchequer funded via UK Sport, and seeks to identify and develop talented atheletes who have shown the potential to reach the world stage.

The programme underpins World Class Performance and together with the Equine Pathway, they comprise the Equestrian World Class Programme, incorporating the three Olympic sports of dressage, eventing, show jumping and the Paralympic sport of para-equestrian dressage.

The programmes work closely with the three British Equestrian Federation Olympic Member Bodies; British Dressage, British Eventing and British Show Jumping, whose own training and competition programmes work hand in hand with the programmes run within World Class.

The 'Supporters of World Class' concept was established in 2003 and designed to allow companies the opportunity to become involved with the Programme for some years now and have provided a vast amount of product support to the riders.
