Walmsley PREMIERBED proudly sponsors Lucy Wilson
Hi, my name is Lucy Wilson.
I am 15 years old. I live in Bramham and attend
Boston Spa School.
I have two ponies, both JA's, called Dalestown Cavalier (Cav) and Knightsbridge (Baz). I also have a Grade A horse called Rimilithius (Theo).
My aims for this year are to represent my country again at the home pony internationals, compete at the European Pony trials and hopefully gain a place on the squad which will be held at Bishop Burton College. I will also be competing my sisters horse in the Under 18 European Team Trials.
All our horses are bedded on Walmsley Premierbed. It's great because it's so much easier to muck out than all the other beddings we have tried in the past! It's also really clean and dust free which is a lot better for the horses and people.
My guinea pig, Ella, is on it too! And it really works well.
We also use Walmsley Premierbed haylage, which is always good quality. The horses love it and delivery is always fast and reliable.

RESULTS for 2013:
FEBRUARY - Finally back out to shows! All the horses had a well earned break, and mum and dad went on holiday! The horses were brought back into work and the 4 year old re-started his education. Then the snow came. If the arena wasn't covered in snow, or a lake, it was frozen - roll on Spring. Chico jumped double clear in the Discovery at Moorhouse, and Winner lived up to his name and won at Port Royal. Edmonton (Eddie) the 4 year old by Zacharov (Clinton) is doing everything asked of him, hacking out alone and basic schooling, but I'm sure he'll do something naughty soon. Looking forward to going to JM Equestrian at Stainsby Grange.
RESULTS for 2012:
SEPTEMBER - Went to Arena UK festival and came 28th in the 1m30 on Tuesday and 14th on Thursday. Theo jumped lovely double clears both days and we went quite fast considering there were 150 in it! Zoe Came 15th out of 170 in the 1m10 on Winner at the Arena UK festival.

He also came 3rd in the discovery at Richmond last week. Rimilithius jumped brilliantly at Bramham Horse Trials. Jumped clear in the first round of the 1m40 and had a fence down in the jump off so retired as he was getting stuck in the mud. He came 4th in the 1m30 the next day and also 4th in the accumulator clearing the joker of a set of planks which stood at 1m55!

RESULTS for 2011:
OCTOBER-DECEMBER - I have just been jumping at local shows; Richmond, Northallerton, Stainsby and Port Royal. Theo has been jumping consistantly but can't wait to get the youngsters out in January! Hopefully we will have an injury free 2012! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
SEPTEMBER - Went to Stokesly show, the last agricultural show of the season and jumped double clear in the 1.30m. Unfortunately Theo then went lame due to a bruised sole so had to have a bit of time off, this meant having to withdraw from the Arena UK championship show. This was really disappointing as my five year old was also out of work with a shoulder injury. I spent this time breaking in my 3 year old. Simon has taken everything in his stride and is a very quick learner, i am looking forward to taking him out to shows in the new year.
AUGUST - Went to Hull show and jumped the 1.25m final on Theo and came 4th. I then went in the 1.40m, he jumped amazing and came 7th behind all the professionals!
JULY - Been competing a lot more this month as all of the county shows have been on. I jumped the 1.40m at Driffield agricultural show on Theo and just had 4 faults. I was so pleased with him because the weather was horrendous, raining really heavy for hours, yet there were still loads of people there and the atmosphere was good.
Went to Bingley show and came 6th in the big class and Harvey Smith did the prize giving which was amazing!
We then went to Ryedale show and came 5th in the 1.30 and also 5th in the speed class (and i thought i went fast!!)
Finally, quick enough at Huby & Sutton when i won the big class. Won a big trophy and also got one to keep!
JUNE - Went to Port Royal and came 4th in the 1.20m on Theo.
The weekend after we went to Bramham international horse trials and jumped really good in the 1.30m, the atmosphere was still good considering it was early in the morning!
Went to Port Royal and came 4th in the 1.20m and 3rd in the 1.30 on Theo and came 3rd in the british novice on my sisters horse, Chico. I also took my 5 year old for the clear round so he gets used to going to shows again and he jumped really good too.
RESULTS for 2010:
DECEMBER - Struggled to work the horses this month because of the snow and ice. But managed to get to Bishop Burton as a warm up for Olympia. Cav came 2nd in the foxhunter and 2nd in the 1.20m. Set off for Olympia bright and early (3am!) and exercised Cav alongside the international riders before my class. He was really well behaved, think he was showing off! The atmosphere was electric and the course was really big and technical. Cav jumped amazing and came 4th! It was my last show on him so it was a lovely way to end 2010!
Happy New Year!

Cav jumped brilliantly over the 4 days, but saved the best until last coming 8th in the big 148cm grand prix! It was a 3 round competition and the fences stood at 1.50m in the last round! With mainly Irish riders in front of me in the line up, this qualified us for Olympia in December!
SEPTEMBER - At the beginning of the month I won a 1.20m on Theo, a good note to finish on before he had a break. Apart from that I haven't been out much.

A two year old called Simon and a four year old called Frankie. They're amazing!
