13-year-old Lavinia on her pony, Dublin, won the British Dressage FEI Pony Team Test Championship at Sheepgate Under 25s in Lincolnshire in August and in October won both the FEI Pony Team and Individual Tests at the View High Profile Show in Leicestershire as well as the Medium Class at the National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) Championships at Addington Manor, Buckinghamshire in the same half term week!
     
She also came 2nd and 7th in the NSEA showjumping classes on her first ever pony Bally Hane Lass Penny, whom she successfully competes in the Cheshire Hunt South Pony Club Show Jumping Teams and British Showjumping Association events (BSJA) at 80 - 95cm at South View and Bold Heath Equestrian Centres in Cheshire. 
   
Only a year ago, Lavinia was contesting her first ever British Dressage Preliminary Test. She has since been selected to represent England at the British Young Riders Dressage Scheme (BYRDS) Home International at Elementary level and is now a reserve for the GB Pony Progress Squad. 

All amazing achievements from Lavinia, especially considering how quickly she has developed in her sport.

Even The Horse and Hound magazine has singled her out as 'one to watch'!
