2018 has certainly been a busy year for Team Shires rider Bonnie Fishburn. A successful season of eventing culminated in a win at Novice level. When not out competing, Bonnie and her horses have been modelling for Shires this year so keep an eye out for them in the new catalogue – coming soon!
We chatted to Bonnie to see what she’s been up to in 2018 and her plans for the coming year.
What was the highlight of 2018 for you?
Winning my last event of the season on Percy. It was a BE Novice and to win on one of my homebred horses is so rewarding. And to put Oliver Townend, the World’s Number 1 in Eventing, into 2nd and 3rd spots was the icing on the cake!
What challenges have you overcome in 2018?
Juggling my baby, Harriet, with all my horses and going out eventing with her in tow.
What is your most loved Shires product of 2018?
This is a tricky one because there are so many fabulous products! I’m going to choose three favourites. Firstly the Highlander Plus Sweet Itch Combo Rug, next the Moretta Teo/Lena Boots and finally the Aubrion Taylor Breeches. But please can I have a big shout out for all the bridles, All Purpose Yard Gloves, AIR DRI Cross Country Shirt, Aubrion Saratoga Jacket and Tempest Original Fleece/Mesh rugs.
What are your aims for 2019?
Mainly to learn how to juggle a toddler with all my horses. And to get lots of great placings with my team of horses.
