JODIE AMOS EVENTING
Billy is a very exciting addition to the team, beautifully produced to Novice level by Lucy Varley. Destined for a career in steeplechasing and after three years of failed attempts, it became obvious that racing was not Billy's forte! The Varleys did the most fantastic job re-training him and paving the way for his new vocation as an eventer.
With Lucy heading off to university, she would no longer have the time to further his education and one of Jodie's most long-standing owners Nicky Coates came on board to help purchase Billy. In a very short space of time, they have upgraded to Intermediate level with ease and although the dressage is still a working progress, Billy's exceptional jump and class across country are undeniably top class.
Jodie will continue to take the time to consolidate his flatwork and give him the grounding necessary going up the grades and alongside Nicky with her patient and long-term approach, they are both very much hoping Billy has what it takes to go all the way and follow in Cracker's footsteps.
