Eventer Lydia Heywood’s top rides are the rising six-year-old mare Tullaher Lottie, who won the most recent four-year-old class at Tweseldown, and My O My Trend, or Flynn, a promising, rising six-year-old gelding. Lydia has represented Jamaica at international 2* level, and mentors minority riders worldwide, with a focus on increasing diversity and inclusion.
"Hello to the Mochara fans, how lovely to be going into some better weather! A bit of an update on life for me and my horses during lockdown V3; February was used wisely to prepare the horses for the season, both Flynn and Mink are looking well, training on site with Gio has fine-tuned us all and I so look forward to Spring. We have enjoyed the benefits of hacking in lockdown, but grass canters just haven’t been possible.
I'm looking forward to visiting Deer Park Cross Country tomorrow to look over some new course designs with the team and will get my horses out for a XC refresher ASAP.
H&C TV filming was another fun and unforgettable experience at Addington Manor with myself, Lucy and Megan riding in the series which will be out this month.
Cool Ridings has some fabulous new members including Tatiane Mauree who has successfully represented GB Internationally, and we look forward to another big announcement soon. All this work creating with Cool Ridings alongside my horses have kept me sane in this difficult time, working from home certainly isn’t all it's cracked up to be!
Until next time, stay safe! Lydia x"
Everyone at Mochara is looking forward to seeing Lydia out and about competing soon.
