Enjoying the sunshine at Hickstead!
What a fantastic Hickstead! Not only did we get to see so many of our riders in action but also plenty of Childéric action on the winners' podiums!
A special mention to Dan Greenwood who took the Hickstead Five Year Old Young Horse Championship on Sarah Luca's Danish bred SJL Backs Zacco. Congratulations to all concerned and also Antiona Brown, Zacco's regular rider. We were particularly chuffed to spot Dan's acknowledgement the difference our bespoke saddle has made.

Oliva Whitelaw was also in winning form with Leo at Hickstead CDIP, winning the individual test on 69.1% and also winning the freestyle test with 71.6%.
"Leo tried so hard for me and having trained him since he was five, it makes me so proud to end our pony career on such a high. It was an amazing feeling doing our lap of honour and to finish with one of our biggest achievements makes me so happy." Said Olivia on her wins!
Well done to Olivia and Leo and all the fabulous combinations we watched in the sunshine!
Sema Lease Camphire International Horse Trials 2019 was one event we won't forget in a hurry! We were overwhelmed to see so many Childéric riders in action at one single event! It was the most significant number of event riders in Childéric Saddles that we have ever seen! We had riders representing Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland, GB, Belgium and New Zealand.
We are also going to be launching a fantastic new jump saddle so keep your eyes peeled as we will be introducing it shortly.
And on a final sign off note this month, we are still working on target for our promise of a 7 - 10 week turnaround on new saddles, with alternations taking on average just two weeks. We know how important it is for you to have your saddle fitting perfectly regardless of whether you compete at top level or ride for fun, which is why we work hard to ensure that our customer service is unrivalled and the Childéric promise delivered to every single one of our valued customers.
