Totally Horse and Pony magazine, June 2017

Despite only being able to use one hand, the runner-up [Lizzie Bennett] had a fabulous position and rode quite beautifully in a really good rhythm – some able-bodied riders should have seen it. She had only ridden side saddle four times so this was an incredible achievement.”
Chris Bartram-Lawton, quoted in East Anglia Rider August 2017

d2_7854.jpgLizzie Bennett, you were brilliant and so together with your horse. Amazing transitions and none of us know how you did it because we couldn’t see your aids. That is the mark of a brilliant rider. Well done!”
