18. Juli Talking to the Team – U18 Sophie Mason
Vor den Frickley-U18-Meisterschaften nächste Woche haben wir uns mit einigen Mitgliedern des vom FOMO gesponserten Kaders getroffen, um etwas mehr über die Partnerschaften zu erfahren, aus denen das Team besteht, und wie ihre Vorbereitungen verlaufen.
Next up is Sophie…
Who are you?: My name is Sophie Mason and I am 17 years old and have just recently finished my final year of high school and am now on a gap year before going to study Law at the University of Aberdeen.
Tell us a bit about your pony: My horses name is Pebbly Limited Edition, otherwise known as Bally at home. He is a 15.1 16 year old grey gelding who I have had the pleasure of riding for the past 2 years.
Wie lange bist du schon Vielseitigkeitssportler und auf welchem Niveau trittst du an? I have been Eventing for the past 2 years and have gone from BE80 level to BE100 level which I currently compete at.
Tell us a bit about your achievements/results this year: This year I have competed at various BE events across the country where for the majority of them I have been placed in the top ten. At the beginning of the season I competed at the Mitsubishi Motors Cup BE100 Championships at Badminton Horse Trials, Bally was a superstar and we were placed just in the top half. This was a truly amazing experience and one that I will certainly never forget.
Worauf freust du dich am meisten, wenn du zu den Meisterschaften fährst? I am most looking forward to getting to know the rest of my teammates as well as seeing what the cross country course looks like!
