A local horse and his owner trying to keep competing against international riders, horses and money in the world of eventing!
About the project
Frankly was an unwanted two year old destined for the meat market.
He required four years of dedicated hard work for his potential to shine through.
He met Princess Anne when she presented him with his prize at Gatcombe Park.
He was placed second at Osberton International 3 day trials.
Frankly, together with is owner/rider Jo Clarke, are 3 day eventers competing across the disciplines of dressage, show jumping and cross country.
Jo owns a small, family run livery yard, breeds spotted horses and provides schooling and training for both horses and riders. She has been competing affiliated eventing since 2003 and now, thanks to Frankly’s star qualities, is breaking into the international circuit, subsidising the relatively small, but constant, entry and travel expenses by selling on her own home bred horses.
Frankly, is the best horse she’s ever trained, a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate at the highest levels, but the accumulating costs of entry to these international competitions are beyond the capacity of a small local yard.
With your help Frankly could compete at Nunney International Horse Trials on the 19th -21st June. Held in the spectacular grounds of Southfield House there will be over 800 competitors, including the international stars and top names of three day eventing.
Only by supporting our talented sportsmen and women at the grass roots level can British men and women ever hope to compete on international circuits.
