Elspeth Day is an up and coming young professional Dressage rider.
Elspeth, or Beth as she is better known, was born into a Dressage community and was riding confidently almost before she could walk. From an infant she showed dedication and passion which singled her out as a future professional. Beth started competing age 5 with a successful season showing at county level with her show hunter pony Fenborn Moonwind.
The following years she started to develop a passion for dressage and started a successful partnership with ‘Godsfield Superstar’ with whom she had won numerous up to medium level and in under 21 championships.
In the following year there were a number of imported Dutch dressage ponies coming through the yard and Beth played her part in their training and competing gaining invaluable experience in working with international quality dressage ponies. Her favourite, Dublin took her to her first big win at the Byrds International in Ireland. Dublin went on to win classes internationally at F.E.I level.
Aged just 14 Beth won the under 16 talent spotting finals with the highest mark from all ages awarded by Connie Endres and Christophe Hess. By the age of 14 Beth was established as an international pony rider and was kindly offered rides by generous owners. For 3 years she represented G.B at F.E.I level on 3 different ponies ;
2009 Sarah Outwin’s Djorby.
2010 Sain Kuropatwa’s Vitus.
2011 Laura Thyrer’s Tymo.
Moving from ponies Beth took over the ride on home bred mare Delilah and took a job working for Peter Storr where she could concentrate on her new partnership.
Under Peter’s watchful eye Beth developed her skills at riding the advanced movements and was able to take Delilah up through the levels and be selected to represent G.B abroad at both Junior F.E.I and Young Rider level with high placings at both Sumaur and Roosendale.
Over the past year Beth has developed depth to her riding and added to her experience by competing in advanced classes on San Remo, a graded KWPN stallion, Ulanski also a graded KWPN stallion and Daimler an advanced son of Donnerhall.
As a result of her competition successes Beth has been granted Sporstaid funding which has helped her to qualify for the National Championships for the second year running at Advanced Medium Open.
In 2015 Beth was selected for the Excel Talent Programme.
Beth has a good client list and shares the family passion for dressage coaching.
