Steph climbs up the world rankings and makes up for lost time with Mr P!

Steph and Mr President have certainly been making up for lost time! After giving birth to her son, within a week Steph was back riding and just three weeks later she was competing at Hartpury CDI3* where she came 4th in the Grand Prix and won the Grand Prix Special. Ten days later the pair went to the Hickstead CDI3* and managed to bring home 6th in the Grand Prix and 3rd in the Grand Prix Special. These fantastic results have meant she has climbed up the world rankings and is now 67th in the world!

Since then she has been a busy bee doing shoots for Your Horse magazine and competing her up and coming youngster, Mr Hyde (apparently he is true to his name!) and had him out doing his first Novice (scoring 71%!!!) and Elementary just a few weeks ago. "Competing with two children is a challenge," Steph says. "Simon is going greyer by the minute! Not only does he have the job of looking after the kids when I am competing but he also is my reader - last weekend Annabel was running around like a lunatic at B where he was reading and if she wasn't my own child I would have definitely made a comment!"

Steph and Mr P are on countdown to the Nationals in September and then have been asked to compete at HOYS in a trial dressage to music class along with a handful of other riders including Carl Hester, Richard Davison, Amy Stovold and Laura Bechtolsheimer, after that she is hoping to jet off to do the CDI3* at La Mandria in Italy.
