Hannah Brown and Socrates
My name is Hannah and this will be my first LNYDP. I started riding at 6 years old and have been ever since. I have done a bit of everything from Pony Club to Eventing. I am riding Socrates or Soxx as he is known to his friends. He is an 18 year old Irish sports horse who came over to England from Ireland and was purchased by the Spooner family. The whole family have enjoyed Soxx during the ten years they have owned him and have competed in showing , show jumping and dressage. Soxx loves to hack out and we are both really looking forward to taking part in this event.

Erin Doig and Diamant Star

My name is Erin and this is my horse Star. I've been riding since I was 4 and got my first pony aged 9. Since then I have done a bit of everything! I really enjoy working with young horses and producing them to competition level. My latest addition is this lovely big bay horse called Star, he is a 5 year old gelding by Diamant De Semilly out of a Quickstar mare. He was bred in Holland and came to the UK this summer. He was quite weak and green, but has really progressed and is now producing double clears and winnings at British Showjumping competitions. This is my first time at The Parade so I am really looking forward to the day.
