Lauren Blades

Lauren moved to Utah when she was three and discovered horses at a young age but only rode in a western saddle until her early teens. A chance lesson in a jumping saddle planted the seed for her to graduate a year early, travel to England and immerse herself in eventing. From 15 she was based with and mentored by Mark and Tanya Kyle. She rode on the Great Britain U21 Team, winning gold, with her first ever event horse. By 2012 she had achieved placings at 4*, winning Best U25 Rider at Burghley two years running, as well as best first timer.

Stable Star - Jesmond Justice

Jesmond Justice (stable name - JJ) owned by Ron Pearson and competing at CCI3 and 4 star. He is a quirky, stressy character who isn't always keen on the same food, but Red Mills feeds have been brilliant for him, he's put on loads of muscle since being with us! While he can show stress, in the stable he loves his cuddles, and will waste everyone's time with loads of fuss! He is planning on competing at Bramham CCI 3 Star then Burghley CCI 4 Star this year (2018), having completed Blenheim with me last year.
