Olivia Rogers and Foxhounds Folly’s Dream (Folly)
Olivia started riding at the age of 3 months old, Olivia lives at Foxhounds and has always been around horses. Olivia has 2 ponies Folly and Roger. Folly and Olivia had many 1st places last year, they competed at Showing, Dressage and Show Jumping. They often compete in team events and the pair have a very close bond.
Olivia goes to see Folly and Roger every morning before school, to say good morning to the ponies and feed them an apple. Olivia and Folly have already qualified for 1st rounds of Trailblazers in both Intro and Premlin.
Roger and Olivia are a new combination and they are both still finding their feet together but we are sure they will be a combination to watch in the future.
Hannah Bourgoine and Cors Cavalier (Roscoe)
Hannah started riding at Foxhound Riding School when she was 4 and 1/2 years old, she is currently 17 years old. She has had Roscoe for 3 years. Roscoe is a 14.2 cob, aged 13 years, who originally came from a disabled riding school. He brings attention across the yard for his friendly personality and his unique markings. They participate in various disciplines of the sport such as dressage, show jumping and cross country, and they hope to continue to constanstly improve.

Jan & Mick Mayers and Just Jack and Mr Twist (Jack & Oliver)
Jack is a 14.2hh Section D who is full of self importance and like all welshes, has a sense of humour when being ridden. He is 24 years old (but does not realise that) and has been owned by the family since January 2008. Jack excelled at jumping with Jan & Mick's daugther, Megan over a 5 year period, but then had to calm down to accomodate Jan when Megan went off to College and University. Jan and Jack can often be seen at the front of the pack over the pit.
Oliver is a 16.3 hh 20 year piebald cob cross. He has been owned by Mick for 7 years. He is a gentle soul with humans, but likes to be the boss in the field.
Both Jan & Mick are a permanent feature at shows and can often be seen supporting and assisting the younger members of Team Foxhounds, either with loading, reading of dressage test or just cheering them on.
Amellia Grundy and Another Chance (Jango)
Amellia is 15 years old and her horse is Jango. Jango is a 15.3hh bay thoroughbred, he was bred for racing but did not make the grade. Amellia has had Jango for a year after loaning him as a 6 year old then falling helplessly in love with him that she brough him. Amellia has been riding on and off since she was 5 and enjoys hacking and schooling. Amellia and Jango have learnt a lot togehter and completed many first together such as cross country (Jango does not like water), dressage and jumping shows, even getting a 1st place in 50cm jumping at their first ever show together. This year they hope to do their first beach ride, have lots of days out hacking and are going to complete the Windsor fun ride in may, and they may do a few shows.
Abigail Lane and Animo Archie (Archie)
Abigail is 15 years old and has been riding 2 years. Previously Abigail had Monty the lovely school horse on loan, but in May 2018 her mum purchased Archie. Despite Abigail have major surgery and being out of action from sometime last year the had a cracking year with them winning Progressive Dressage, Novice Horse and Junior Handler champion at Thurrock Riding Club.
They have currently qualified first rounds for Trailblazers for dressage and hope to qualify for Sunshine Tour in both Dressage and Showing.
Evie Austen and Amazing Moo (Maisey)
Evie is 14 years old and has had Maisey since September 2015. Maisey came from the RSPCA after being let out of her field and and hit by a car. She had 60 stiches and many months of rehabiliation before coming to live at Foxhounds with Evie.
Both Maisey and Evie have come on leaps and bounds and have already qualifeid 1st round Trailblazers for dressage, qualfied Sunshine Tour and they love their lessons with our Instructor Louise. They are now jumnping 85cm at home.
Maisey is also ridden by Evie's nan Dayle. Dayle is the loudest member of the Foxhounds team and can often been seen (or heard) supporting all the team at events.
