Sportslinc caught up with local rider Amy Lacey to find out how the season was going so far.

She said: “I competedĀ in the one-day event at Caistor yesterday riding my horse Jasmine.

“It was our first time in the 80cm class and I could tell Jasmine was really up for it.

“We have done a lot of preparation work with our brilliant instructor, Emma Elliott. It really paid off.

“Jasmine was great in the dressage, securing us an early lead.

“We had one pole down in the show jumping due to a tricky approach but we then flew round the cross country like a machine.

“There was a very spooky double of hanging logs and a big ditch but Jasmine didn’t bat an eyelid.

“I couldn’t be more pleased with her and feel ready for our next event this Sunday at the Blankney Pony Club event at Norton Disney.

“The feedback I received after my dressage was that I needed to use more leg but as I suffer from MS my legs are a bit weak so I am actually pleased with such comments.

“My aim is to become affiliated to British Eventing by the end of the season.

“I feel we have made a great start.”
