My name is Sophie Hall and I’m a 24 year old young rider. I juggle working in London with competing my 3 horses based at our home yard in Shropshire alongside running the Great Britain Student Riders Squad and travelling across the globe every year to compete and manage the team in the international Nations Cup series. Eventing is my big passion and my ultimate dream is to one day be able to compete at Badminton 5*. We also enjoy having some fun with British Dressage and even a bit of national showing every now and again too. This year our big focus is on my 5yo ISH Helvick HSH Hero who joined us at the end of 2018 and is at the exciting start of his Eventing career. GB Student Riders will also be hosting a Nations Cup in Great Britain, the first in 5 years, this August so we are busy busy in preparation for this very special 3 day event. I first met Shearwater Insurance in 2016 when my horse Gusthoff won the EHOA award at Badminton MMCup Championships. Receiving our prize from Jeremy up at Badminton House was a moment I will never forget and the team were so supportive. In 2018 I was crowned the winner of the Shearwater Search for a Star competition and feel honoured to have been sponsored by the company ever since.
What came across straight away was that Shearwater are a team of horse owners truly dedicated to the interests of horse owners. They understand our priorities and concerns over the wellbeing and protection of what are not only competition animals but also very special friends. Being covered by Shearwater in times of emergency is second to none, they are total experts in equine care, really responsive and great value for money.
