Millie was an amazing horse, owner Kathryn Rollinson hadn’t owned her a year when she competed with her on the GB Young Rider team in Switzerland in 2007. This was such an achievement as she certainly wasn’t a ready-made horse and was very green. Millie also represented GB in Austria on the senior team, a competition they were very proud to complete and an experience they will never forget.
Millie went on to compete at TREC up to level 4 where she won every title possible, she has been Welsh level 4 champ, Scottish level 4 champ, English level 4 champ and GB level 4 champ and she has also been on the winning Nations Cup team. Millie has also won these titles at lower level, her last competition being the Scottish champs in 2018 at level 3 where she won the title.
Millie was a character, often seen dragging her ‘holder’ around the venue whilst waiting for Kathryn to come out of the map room to then stand angelically whilst Kathryn mounted. She always made us laugh, she was a horse that knew her job.
She loved day 2 and always came out full of beans.
Millie was retired in 2019 after an unexplained injury was found that was an untreatable. Millie lived out her days in the field overlooking the sea, she will always be loved and forever missed.
