International World Class Para Dressage Rider – Nicky Greenhill

“Horse riding makes me feel free. It’s the same as when I am working with Hebe my guide dog, using an animals eyes to see for me is exhilarating!”

Wow!!! What an Amazing start to Betty’s para campaign... A PB for me in the Individual Test of 73.8% and we have only just started our journey together. I have never formed a relationship so strong with any other horse so quickly, she is something really special. 😀

The Little Fella wasn’t far behind her with 71%, just need to find a way to contain his power in those tests as he is so huge and the tests are so fiddly, but once I find the right compromise of power verses harmony his scores will hopefully go up and up. There is no limit for him, its just whether I can learn to ride him at his maximum potential. 👍

I feel so lucky to be able to ride these 2 as they are both so genuine which makes my job of riding and training them an absolute pleasure. 😍

Had a great day in the sun yesterday competing Ed and Betty. It is the first time we have competed them together and they were as good as gold. ⭐️🐎 I felt the scores were a little surprising, but that’s what we have to accept in a judged sport... Overall I was thrilled with them both as they are both growing in confidence and feeling so much stronger. 🙂

Thank you to Fairoak Grange Equestrian for being so unbelievably helpful in the warm up and Thank you to Sam Pryke for keeping the horses super chilled and making them look beautiful. Gary has now bought a new gadget, a GoPro, so photos are no longer a problem. 👍😀

No coughing for Betty this time thanks NAF Kof-Eze. 👍

Hebe update...

People keep asking how Hebe is, which is really touching, so I thought I would give everyone an update on here. She has now had the surgery on her cruciate ligament as it was completely ruptured. The operation went well and she is now 2 weeks into her rehab. Due to the complexity of the surgery and the risk being so high of re-injury the rehab is incredibly slow.

The surgeon is seeing her again next week and if he’s happy she can start doing a very small amount of lead walking. Assuming everything is then ok and she’s fully weight bearing on the leg she then increases her walking by 5 minutes each week. She will be away for 2 to 3 months and whilst the rehab will continue for another 3 months after that, to get her fully fit, we hope that she will be able to return to work when she comes home in June. 🤞

I miss her like mad and I have lost my independence again that she so kindly gave back to me. I just need to be patient and keep everything crossed that she will once again change my life. 😍❤

We took the Beautiful Betty Boo for her first outing today to do a couple of elementary’s. We have only owned her for such a short time, so I was a little nervous as to how she was going to be at her first party. I am absolutely delighted to report that she was an Angel. 😀⭐️🐎

I have so much love for this horse already, she just has the Biggest Heart. We looked after each other and managed to achieve 70% in our first test. Unfortunately she had a bit of a coughing fit in the second test so I had to retire. 😍

So thrilled to get the first one under our belt, lots to work on and loads of confidence gained for our next outing.

Eddie... I think you might have some competition! 🤣

Do you have any lucky riding gear or competition superstitions?

“No, I keep trying to find one, but Gary keeps telling me that the only thing that is lucky is if I ride well… I don’t believe him, so I keep on searching!”
