Banwell rider Maddie Thynne has been selected by British Dressage to take part at this year’s BD National Convention, in association with Harrison Clark Rickerbys and St John’s Chambers on November 19-20.
In a new twist to the programme and in keeping with this year’s theme of dressage for all, riders of all types of non-traditional dressage horse, including gypsy cobs, Iberian horses, thoroughbreds and native breeds, were invited to apply through their region to receive expert coaching from the legendary Stephen Clarke in front of the crowd at Hartpury College.
Maddie, aged 25, is a freelance rider and instructor and was selected with her nine year old black Friesian gelding Wietse V/D Slothoeve, owned by Katie Holloway. She has competed to advanced medium and is working towards coaching and judging exams.
Maddie has also represented Under-25 dressage home international teams and represented the South West region on numerous occasions.
