There will be two members of the Rimmer household, mother Jo and daughter Jessica who are looking forward to competing at Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials (8 -11 September).
Forty-seven-year-old, Jo will ride her own and Anna Slight’s Isaac Newton in the CIC3* for eight- and nine-year-old horses which is one of Britain’s most prestigious classes for young event horses. Meanwhile Jo’s daughter Jessica who’s 14-years-old will ride her own 14.2hh Irish After Shock in the Voltaire Design 100cm Eventer Challenge class, a popular arena eventing competition for amateur riders.
“It will be such a thrill for both of us to ride at Blenheim Palace – I first rode there in 1995 and have had such good times there,” said Jo. “This is Jessica’s first time at Blenheim Palace – she is so excited to get into this competitive class. It should be both great fun for her and fantastic experience to ride at such a big event.”
