I ended the 2017 season back on the Team GB Championship Squad for the European Championships in Strzegom with Quarrycrest Echo and rode Vanir Kamira to 2nd place at Burghley - a dream return!
2018 culminated in a Team Gold medal for Team GB at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon and then came the season of my life (so far!) in 2019. A World Record 15 International wins including wins at every level from 2* to 5*. But, of course, most important of all was winning Badminton, the most prestigious event in our sport.
Vanir Kamira is a fantastic horse, not easy, but tough, brave and a fighter. I went crazy after her show jumping round at Badminton, not to wind up the crowd, but because I knew I had achieved the best result possible for her. That was my moment for myself and the emotion poured out of me.
After years of screaming to myself, suddenly everyone was screaming with me and for me. And, then, to win the biggest prize in our sport was a complete fairytale.
The road to climb back to the top was a long one, and a tough one at times, but boy was it worth the struggle to get there. Winning Badminton is a moment I will treasure forever and a day.
