Meet a few of the Central BYRDS Riders..


Anne-Sophie Gilson:

My name is Anne-Sophie Gilson and I have been at Swallowfield for almost 3 years, I first had a pony called Chico who I unfortunatley had to give away due to injury. However I now have Casper a 16.1hh, 7 year old, Dutch Warmblood who I have had now for almost a year. I have regular lessons with Jo Swain, who has brought on my riding and my horses way of going to a level I never thought would be possible in such a short time! I regulary compete in dressage competitons and seem to win most of them with 70%+ scores! I hope to compete on the BYRDS teams this year and qualify for the Novice and music regionals.
