Sponsored Rider Gemma Tattersall Finishes in 5th Position at Burghley Horse Trials!!!

We are thrilled for Gemma Tattersall and Artic Soul on their 5th position at this years Burghley Horse Trials, so we asked Gemma to put a small piece together so you know how the event went for them.......

"I was so thrilled and exciting about getting to Burghley despite my massive disappointment of not going to WEG, but that's life and the preparation for Burghley was going really well, so I was determined to do well after our frustration at Badminton, where we had an unfortunate technical elimination. As Arctic Soul can struggle with big atmospheres, we spent the first two days just walking, hacking and lunging to get him acclimatised as the atmosphere built up and I really believe that this paying off as he seems to be getting better and better each outing! In the dressage, he tried really hard and whilst there were a few mistakes he really did try hard and I was so pleased with him as this was only his second time at 4* level. In the cross-country I have to admit I did feel a bit nervous and under pressure but we had an amazing round and it was more about me as oppose to him as I know what a super star he is in this phase! The show-jumping went amazingly well and we jumped around beautifully. Sometimes when tension creeps it can cause us to have poles down, but he was brilliant and took me around confidently and happily. Arctic Soul or Spike as he is known at home is now on a well deserved holiday in the field at home and seems very pleased with himself and shows off to anyone passing (Equine or Human!) I am over the moon with this horse especially as we are still looking to expand our syndicate of ownership (If anyone is interested on coming on board please contact us!) to ensure he stays with us for the rest of his career, which judging by Burghley is going to a successful one!"
