Vanir Kamira: An incredible journey by Piggy March


When I was a little girl growing up, I used to buy lots of books about famous riders and horses. I loved them and found them fascinating. Never did I think I would be writing one about a horse I rode, until now! Vanir Kamira is unique in so many ways, and her story is definitely one I would love to share with you all. She is a normal little mare with quirks and difficulties that everyone can relate to. But not everyone can relate to winning the two biggest five-stars in the world. Her journey is incredible and she has given me the best days of my life. She totally won my heart and, in reading this, I hope she wins over yours.


Thank you, Tilly Bean.

    Some horses stand out as potential superstars from the start.This is the story of one that didn’t; Vanir Kamira (“Tilly”), an “ordinary” little mare who, through sheer determination and the building of an exceptional partnership with her rider Piggy March, won the two most important CCI5* horse trials in the world — Badminton and Burghley.


    Bought from Ireland as a three-year-old by Trevor Dickens, who still owns her, Tilly started her eventing career in 2012 with Piggy, who is one of the world’s most celebrated event riders. 


    But the mare showed little to persuade Piggy that she had a bright future in the sport, and Piggy gave up the ride after one season. Circumstances brought the pair back together in the winter of 2016, and at Piggy's Northamptonshire yard they started to form a bond.


    Written with great honesty, Vanir Kamira: An incredible journey details the long and often-frustrating and difficult path Piggy and Tilly took to mutual trust, respect — and love. It is one that brought both to the absolute heights of their sport. 


    This book will fascinate anyone with an interest in horses, and especially anyone who likes to discover what makes these bewitching animals tick and how to help them feel and perform as well as they possibly can.
