Dressage rider, Katie Bailey has had a great career so far, standing as Reserve Champion in the Pony Talent Spotting Final in 2002. She has ridden in 13 Internationals at Junior/YR level, including two Junior European Championships in 2005/06.
She then went on to receive a scholarship to train at The Talland School of Equitation and gain her teaching qualifications in 2007/08 before moving to Carl Hester's yard where she was based and trained by the maestro, for five years, until 2014.
Under Carl's wing, she gained regional titles and came 2nd on the superstar, Nip Tuck, at the Advanced Medium Winter Championships in 2013 with whom, she was also on World Class Equine Pathway with that same year.
Katie has been placed in numerous British Dressage National Championships and con her own and her mother's Hillgrounds Wolkenhall, gained a 3rd at the Badminton Young Horse Championships in 2015. She is also very excited about Rob and Sue Fearis 'Fernando' and Fiona Wallbanks 'Fico' whose progress we will keep you updated on.
She now runs her own full livery and schooling livery business in Gloucestershire and continues to train with Carl. We look forward to working with Katie and thank her for choosing to join Piaffe.
