Caroline’s 11 year old mare, Billy Bumble finished 8th in the Irish Field CCI4* at Tattersalls International Horse Trials at the beginning of June.
Izzy Taylor took top honours (on a final score of 32.4) in a quality field, with Caroline finishing ahead of William Fox-Pitt and Pippa Funnell.
This was both Caroline’s and Bumble’s first attempt at this level and they finished on the highly respectable score of 43.4, putting in a fabulous dressage performance (32.2), a clear cross country round and just one pole down show jumping.
“There are not enough words to describe how incredible this little horse is. She has made so many dreams come true and is one in a million. Huge thanks go to my amazing team of vets, physio, farriers, trainers, sponsors and my team at home, thank you for everything. Bumble you are simply the best,” commented Caroline.
Tattersalls came just 2 weeks after Caroline had a rider fall at Rockingham so was delighted with her own comeback.
