Quick questions with Liz
WHAT EQUESTRIAN ACHIEVEMENT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
My most recent achievement that I am proud of is with my Large Galloway “Martini” coming away with Runner Up Large Galloway at the 2022 SHC Grand Nationals and my daughters pony Dalbrae Vegas winning the Open Leading Rein class at the Equestrian Australia Show Horse Nationals 2020/2021. Also watching my two daughters do well with their ponies in the ring .
HOW DO YOU STAY MOTIVATED?
My love of beautiful horses and journey of finding young prospects for the show ring and training them.
WHAT IS YOUR BEST COMPETITION DAY TIP OR ADVICE?
Been well prepared at home, I work on minimum 8 week prep for an upcoming show season. Pack your BARE competition Tights!!
DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR GOAL OR PLAN YOU’RE EXCITED ABOUT IN 2022?
This year we have a few young horses coming out which is always exciting.
WHICH ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BARE PRODUCTS AND WHY?
Technical Jacket – This is my go to piece at home and at competition, the tech jacket is so stylish and comfortable to ride in, warm in winter and great for layering to stay warm. Competition Tights – These tights are the BEST! Perfect colours , they do not restrict you at all while riding and provide fantastic grip . Also so easy to wash and dry while away at a competition.
