Glushu are delighted to announce the sponsorship of Durham dressage rider Katie Roberts.
Glushu are delighted to announce the Sponsorship of Katie Roberts and her handsome horse, Gazelle (aka Overated)
Katie grew up in West Pelton, she started riding at the age of 8 and her father, a veterinarian, bought her first horse when she was 11 years old. She has been riding for 25 years. She stables her horses locally and visits them twice a day every day.
Gazelle enters dressage competitions locally in Durham and is hoping to move up the levels. She is also showing and has just started jumping.
For Gazelle the Glushu are lighter than steel shoes and perfect for dressage. Car parks and tracks are very stony and the Glushu give Gazelle the cushioned support he likes (having pulled a shoe previously standing back down on the nails).
When hacking, Katie is no longer worried about the grip on the ground, because of the cushioned effect of the Glushu Gazelle doesn’t feel any stones.
He has just completed his 1st novice dressage test and scored 70.20%, only 2% behind the winner and is hoping to move up to elementary by the end of the year.
From Katie Roberts:
"So pleased I can finally announce that Glushu have decided to become our official sponsor. John and Sue from glushu have been great over the last 2 years we have been using their unique shoes, and I look forward to many more years working with them to promote their fantastic products xxx"
