Equiwear Sponsored Rider – Paul Burgess

Paul is an up and coming event rider who has ridden for Oliver Townend and Piggy French producing many young horses.

Currently Paul is competing two horses; Maistresse a 7 year old mare by Jaguar Mail out of a Master Imp mother, who is competing at intermediate level this year.

The pair completed Osberton 6 year olds last year and won the Best British Bred mare award. He is aiming to go to Tattersalls in Ireland at the end of May for the 6/7 year old class and then aim for 2 star level later this year and to finish at Osberton 7 year olds.

Jumbolina (Linnie) is a 5yr old mare by Powerblade out of a Jumbo mother. The aims for this year are to do 5 year old Burghley young event horse classes and debut competitions in British Eventing later in the year with the aim to do 5 year old classes also. Both horses are owned by Bill and Linda Bowen and were bred by the Harthill stud.

Paul first entered into the horse world though his sister’s interest at a young age when the family went on a riding holiday in Devon, which resulted in his first pony when he came home. Paul entered into racing and eventually  converted to eventing and has never looked back!
