Portia was the horse who got owner Marie Spillane started with competing in TREC in 2003.
Portia was an ex-racehorse who was a true all-rounder representing Pony Club and Riding Club at arena qualifiers and national championships in Eventing at novice level. Portia & Marie had a go at TREC after retiring her from Eventing. She took to the sport very easily and enjoyed several years competing at TREC before old age sadly caught up with her. She was super consistent at MA scoring full marks for canter and 15 plus for walk nearly every time. She often got one of the highest PTV scores too. She was a regular winner of winter series competitions. Portia & Marie’s best season was in 2008 where the pair won the Welsh, Scottish and British Championships as a level 2 individual. They followed this up with a win in the English level 2 individual championships in 2011 when she had to stand in at the last minute after Marie’s other horse went lame.
