Dexter Addington

So here is Dex and to say he has surpassed all our expectations is an understatement. Bought by my good friend Michele Wyatt as a 4 year old, he has gone from strength to strength.

 Dex has a good brain and is very trainable, reminding me in many ways of Custard.

In 2016 he was 3rd in the National 5 year old championship at Hickstead.

 Winter training with Emile Faurie saw Dex get stronger and both of us raised our game in 2017.

 He was 3rd in the Novice Gold Freestyle Winter Regional Championship in February and gave a fabulous performance in the Novice Gold to come 5th.

We were then granted wildcards for both classes at Hartpury in April for the Winter Championships amd he came 7th in the Novice Gold Freestyle!

In June 2018 I gave birth to my son Zachary and although I continued riding, Dex had a quieter start to the year following the Winter Regionals where he was very respectably placed in the usual good company.

However he showed us he was very pleased to be back out competing at Bury Farm High Profile Show in August with 2nd and 3rd placings in the Elementary classes and then by winning the Elementary Freestyle with a fabulous score of 77.31%

Dex ended 2018 by consistently scoring over 70% at Medium level.

2019 started quietly as Dex recovered from a virus but an outing to Beechwood Equestrian Centre in April saw him winning all four classes he entered with scores over 70% at Elementary and Medium levels!
