After a fantastic year event rider Jodie Amos is developing and strengthening her growing team of event horses with support from Jocelyn Riley and Equestrian Direct Surfaces.
A keen event rider herself Jocelyn has watched Jodie’s career closely and is to support the talented Northamptonshire based rider with a new ride under a joint partnership.
Taking third place at the 2014 Blenheim International Horse Trials, on her top ride, Wise Crack, Jodie has enjoyed a very successful season finishing in the top placing at several CCI3* competitions.
For 2015 Jodie will be campaigning the six-year-old gelding, Ballytarsna du Carel, by Harlequin du Carel out of Errigal Temptress, a mare who has produced several talented horses who have competed up to 3*.
Having already both show jumped and evented at the lower levels, Jodie looks forward to further producing and competing this potential superstar in the making.
Said Jodie: “I am very excited about the new partnership with Equestrian Direct Surfaces, and I am really looking forward to the new season.”
“Ballytarsna du Carel certainly has the breeding as well as the temperament and talent to progress throughout his career and I can’t wait to get out competing with him.”
Added Jocelyn Riley of Equestrian Direct Surfaces: “We are very keen to support talented young riders in the world of eventing.”
“Jodie shows guts and determination and has a real desire to compete at the top of her sport and we will be watching her progress closely with this talented young horse.”
