est friends Ella Popely and Amy Inglis like to do everything together – and that includes qualifying for the prestigious Royal International Horse Show! Both girls are looking forward to riding at the show at Hickstead later this month, and have high hopes of victory in their classes. Amy and The girls have Ella shared the excitement of show jumping life since they were babies, with dads John Popely and Duncan Inglis, themselves both internationally renowned show jumpers on hand to offer their wealth of

experience and talent. “It’s great to have our Dads to help us out, we always ride together at Amy’s house” said Ella. They are now working hard to prepare their ponies for Hickstead, “Rusty is a bit bargy sometimes! And he eats everything!” said Ella. “ Tita can be a bit grumpy, although she’s quiet and minds her own business. I love them both.” The girls regularly compete with the full support of their mums, Lea Popely and Claire Inglis. “We’re so proud of the girls, and it’s great they share such a keen passion for ponies!” they said. The girls are very ambitious for their show jumping futures and are very excited about jumping in the world famous Hickstead arena. “I’d definitely do the Derby Bank!” said Ella, though Amy wasn’t as keen! “I’m not sure! It’s so scary!”
