TEAM TUNNAH EVENTING

Welcome to Team Tunnah Eventing (TTE)!

Team Tunnah Eventing is simply made up of me, Sophie, my husband, Andrew, and the main star, the horse, Thomas.

After getting back into the saddle following 8 years out doing GCSEs, A-Levels and Uni, I have been more than keen to have a go at eventing...

I've had a 15.1 black mare on loan to get me back into riding, from Nov 07 - Aug 08, Grace.
Next, came Buddy. A 16.3 ISH that I bought as a 5 year old. Buddy certainly taught me to ride a 'proper horse', and is very talented. Unfortunately, he wasn't so keen on cross country. Buddy was sold May 2012, after having him since Sept 08.

Now I have Thomas, a beautiful 16.3 ISH bay gelding. His full name is Plessey Tee Jay. We've had Thomas since May 2012, and since then he has been a superstar, competing local dressage and show jumping, before FINALLY taking me to my first ever British Eventing competition.

Since August, we've done four competitions, have great results in all. Thomas has done some eventing before I bought him, so he shows me the ropes most of the time!
