On Friday Zara told the Blenheim Trials: ‘[Watkins] a good little pony. Even when I’m pulling on his face, he’s like ‘yeah I’m still going’. 

‘He’s very quick on his fences and away from his fences. He loves the ground. If we jumped [over] all the right things, I was pretty confident. He’s a quick horse and he loves the hills.’ 

Zara has had a busy few weeks of competing and has kept up her tight trials schedule after enjoying various riding events this summer.
