Charlotte Lutener is 18 years old and has been riding since the age of four. She is based in Ripponden, West Yorkshire and developed a passion for dressage at the age of 13 and so she bought Comtess from Astrid Bolton in May 2014.

Over the summer of that year, she competed in the Novice open classes, regularly achieving scores of over 70% and went on to qualify and win the Novice open area festival at Warren Farm. Two weeks prior to the championships, sadly Tess went lame, so Charlotte spent most of 2015 bringing her back into work and up to optimum fitness. She is very excited and looking forward to competing in 2018.
