Helen West Gets New Ride on Eebay

HorseHage-sponsored rider, Helen West, is to take over the ride of the Dutch-bred gelding, Eebay, from owner, Sophie Stockdale, who purchased the seven-year-old from event rider, Lucy Wiegersma 18 months ago.

Said owner Sophie: “Lucy said she had a horse with a huge jump for sale – we went to try him and bought him and took him home that day!”

Devon-based event rider,Helen, took over the ride for Sophie in September and will be aiming him for second round show-jumping qualifiers for the Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) at Newcomers and Foxhunter level next summer.

Said Helen: “Eebay is not the easiest horse to ride, but we seem to have bonded well and he has a seriously scopey jump. He has had all double clears this season and I look forward to taking him further next year.”
