Phoebe Locke is a 15 year old event rider from Somerset who started her early career in show jumping. She has competed at Horse of the Year Show in 128cm and 138cm classes on six occasions, as well as winning at the Olympia International Horse Show on her pony Dynamite Diggy in a Native Pony Saddle Company Pony Club with custom flaps, fitted by Dean in 2006.
At the age of 8 years old Phoebe had her debut on the England Show Jumping Team on her pony Just Cyber Space, and continued competing on the team for a further five years, winning many gold and silver medals.
At the age of 14 Phoebe decided to focus her efforts on a new discipline and Joined British Eventing. Phoebe has three ponies which she evented over the 2014 season, Mr Otto, Quay and Tullibards X-Factor.
Phoebe has competed at BE 100 level all the way up to CCI 1* Her biggest achievement to date was being selected for the Great Britain European Pony Squad last year 2014 at
Millstreet on her pony Mr Otto. This achievement was quite remarkable considering that she only started competing at 1* level in May 2014 where she competed at Brand Hall where she finished 5th and was awarded the best 14 and under rider in GB by the selectors.Her season continued on a upward trend with various top ten places throughout last year on all three ponies which made this a wonderful start to her eventing career.
At the start of 2015 phoebe had some great news from the chairman of selectors confirming that both her FEI ponies Mr Otto and Quay have been selected onto the British Eventing A-squad. She hopes to continue competing both ponies at FEI level throughout the season whilst at the same time trying to move Tullibards X Factor up to novice and pony trial level.
Therefore we are very proud to support Phoebe throughout the 2015 season.Phoebe rides in a Comfort Elite Rapport Dressage Saddle and Comfort Elite Puissance Event Saddle which she rode in at the Europeans.
Phoebe says “ the difference in my position since riding in the Comfort Elite Saddles has changed dramatically and my comfort dressage saddle keeps me in a perfect position and even more importantly, Mr Otto loves it!”
