Unfortunately after extensive treatment and time off, Stef's top horse Jacko's Delight didn't make his high hoped return to competition. However he is now enjoying a happy retirement home in Nottinghamshire, where he is much loved.

As a result Stef redoubled her efforts and enthusiasm into the training of her clients. Many of whom performed with distinction in 2008 and acheived many of their relevant personal goals. Of note, these include, a debut riding for GB; first time qualification and completion at Pony Club Eventing Championships for over 20 years of a branch team; consistent winners and placings at BE Intro, Pre Novice, Novice and Intermediate level; also at BD dressage and BSJA shows. It has also been very rewarding to see the progress and development of those with non-competitive aspirations as well.

To continue with her training and support of her clients to the best of her ability. Also a possible foray into the world of dressage with Mr John Hargrave's Ulien during the summer.
