Honestly I am so lost for words. I've said it so many times and it brings me to tears to think about it, but I don't think we'll ever see a horse like Valegro again in our lifetime. He is my soulmate, my best friend and I cannot believe how hard he tries every time we go down that centre line. I apologise for the speech but I have to say a huge thank you to Carl, Roly, Ann, Alan, and everyone at the yard who work so hard; my family, Dean, my friends especially my best friend Ian, Piaffe and everyone back home. I know a lot of you are watching today.
I also would not be doing any of this without my incredible sponsors; Kingsland, Saracen Horse Feeds, Selleria Equipe, Charles Owen ,Roeckl Sports, Absorbine ,Bucas, Boss Horseboxes, Acavallo, Horse Health, Centaur Heated Horse Rug Dryers, WHIS, FMBs Therapy Systems ,Annabel Brocks ,Zebra Products, Konigs and Sprenger. Your messages of support mean so much to me and you help me stand on that podium every time. :-)
Lastly, and yes it is a bit of a speech (haha), thank you to everyone who writes such lovely messages on this wall. I read each and every one of them and I truly share these achievements with you. x
