Firstly I must thank Maria Buckley and Marie Carter for running my two yards so brilliantly. They work so hard and put up with me manfully. In addition Josie O'Leary, Sarah Powell, Tara Rattray and Alex Tordoff have been great, keeping the horses going and the show on the road, Particularly when I have been away competing.
Without my owners I would not be in this remarkably privileged position to make my passion and life long love my 'work'. I cannot thank them enough for making it possible.
I was thrilled Bozzie went so well for Maria and Andrew Buckley in France and at Blenheim.
Simon and Hazel Dunstan have been so supportive and it is particularly sad for me that Hazel will not be as involved with the sale of Sorina last month.
Entertainer has been frustrating for the ever enthusiastic Sue Crane this year but her faith in him never ebs and I hope he repays her in 2012.
Georgie Jelfs and her niece have been a breath of fresh air this season and so grounded about their wonderful mare Tula.
Alison Wrangham has been so understanding and kind...I hope Maggie comes back, all guns blazing next year.
Serena and Davina Greenwell have been fantastic, yet again in 2011. I am so lucky to have them and they are such great owners who tick every box. Always supportive, always smile and nod no matter how well or badly it goes.
Christine Sloman, a new owner this year has been so enthusiatic. I hope that enthusiasm continues through 2012.
Lorna Triggs has been great, and I hope her new venture, L T Saddle fitting takes off in the coming year and that Lion answers all her wants in 2012.
Spider is an exciting prospect for Karen Broomhead, Dave Hill and Bradley Hill. I hope I can help him fulfill his promise next year.
Thanks also to Anne James.
Without Riverlea Tractors my foreign trips this season would simply not have been possible, so I cannot thank them enough.
Thomasina Spillman as Chiro, Bradley Hill and Simon Shone as Vets and Ben Pollock and Phil Richardson as farriers, you could not wish for a better line up of professionals behind the scenes.
I also have to thank my wonderful friends who give up freely their time to help me at events. They work so hard for a mere thankyou at the end of the day. Bradley Hill, Marie Carter, Katherine Kirkland and Carrie Davison, I cannot thank you enough.
I hope I can do you and the horses all proud in 2012.
