Caroline Underhill and her horse Copper Clover (aka Chester to his friends) were the lucky winners of the Cathean Ltd Ian White Memorial Trophy BE100 class at Smith's Lawn Horse Trials 2013. Not only that, but they won the best turned out prize, the Willow Trophy, too! Successful international event rider, Piggy French, generously donated a training session to the trophy winner at her yard in Northamptonshire. Given Piggy's hectic schedule plus Caroline's busy life trying to juggle her eventing around her day job of accountancy, it was a minor miracle that they got a date in the diary, but they did! "I had a lovely time at Piggy's, thank you. It was a freezing cold foggy day but I had a really good jump lesson and Chester behaved himself and didn't embarrass me. Piggy was very welcoming and friendly and made me feel very relaxed." Good luck to Caroline and Chester for the forthcoming season, and we hope to see you at Smith's Lawn again this year. A big thank you to Piggy French for her generosity and to her team for being so helpful in organising a date.
