“HE WAS ON FIRE – I JUST SAT AND STEERED”
JEANETTE MACWHINNIE credited her support network – which includes trainers Sue Cottrell, Tracy Ormrod and Jake Taylor – for her recent progress with Landsbury Cobweb, which culminated in a personal best of 80% in the prelim 14 at Foxes RS, Cheshire. The home-bred gelding, who is by Jeanette’s Welsh Section D stallion and out of a gypsy cob mare, is just 15hh but “keen to learn and eager to please”.
“We’re both really enjoying the dressage,” said Jeanette, who feared she might have to give up riding due to visual impairment. “He was on fire in the test. I just sat and steered.”
