Ellie Roe is a 13 year old girl who love’s Dressage. Ellie was one of our runners-up in our first Ambassador competition in July 2021, she received over 500 votes and we were blown away with the support she received during this time showing how popular she is in her community.


“I wasn’t born into money & my family and my trainer Louise Searle work incredibly hard to help me on my journey. I just want to show, that anything is possible with Love, hard work & understanding your pony”


Ellie has been riding since she was 3 but about 3 years ago she had an awful fall where my pony fell on top of her (a rotational fall)! Starting from the beginning and re-building her strength and confidence she started to improve and in April 2020 she formed a new combination with her new ride Corscaron Cardi Llwyd or Taran as he is known.


“In June 2020 I decided to give Dressage a go with Seavington Pony Club. I now compete on-line, BD Affiliated, BD Quest & in Unaffiliated competitions” 


She has been unbelievably successful and now as she is progressing up the levels she has taken on another pony called Pennyfarthing Zeus. Zeus has been very highly schooled previously but Ellie is re-training him and bringing him back into competition fitness, with the dedication she has shown already im sure this combination will go very far!
