“The first time I saw Palamos in the ring he was being ridden by head girl Dawn Elliott. I was so distracted by his majesty and grace I could not concentrate on the horse I was riding, He was truly a sight to be seen… this was what I had come to Contessa for…to see and learn how to ride the advanced horses. One day I thought, that might be me!!! Then, some time later, I could not believe it when I saw my name next to Palamos on the advanced lesson list, there must be some mistake I thought…no mistake!!!…and there I was, half an hour later, floating on air… riding piaffe & passage for the first time. It was amazing…something I have never forgotten. I got more than I could have hoped for from Tina, her horses and her wonderful team at Contessa Riding Centre.”
