“Erik, Dude and I, have a fun in the showring, we hack, we dressage, we love pole work clinics and camps and just enjoying ourselves! But it wasn’t always as easy as that sounds. I started out as a private client of Jenni’s almost 4 years ago and my first to her was after being stuck on a mounting block at a show, I physically couldn’t get off the block and onto the horse. It’s culminated in an incredible journey throughout which Team FCC have encouraged, cheered, picked me up, wiped tears and celebrated the small steps. At the end of 2019 we reached a return to the county show ring and won at Henley County and all I could shout out was ‘I rode past a fun fair, I rode past a fun fair’. The win was amazing but that journey from mounting block to fun fair – wow. Being part of Team FCC and flying the flag as an ambassador in 2020 has been an incredible journey of shared values, personal growth, learning and development and long may it continue. Thank you team.”
