Thirteen-year-old identical twins Amy and Beth Coxon Gilliat will be competing in this year’s Polo International Horse Trials event. Amy will ride Global Herbs Fairy Lane, a 6-year-old TB she has brought on since coming off her very successful pony. Amy and Fairy compete at 80cm eventing, 90cm show jumping and novice dressage. Fairy and Amy consistently placed at Junior Derby and have gone into the country on a 37.9 dressage score. Beth will also be competing in the event, she will be riding Rieperbahn, who was initially a racehorse and then went on to show jump. His nickname is Rupert. Beth has her sights on winning the one metre jump at this year’s event.
