Roo Fox – Welcome to Team GH!

August 11, 2015 Richard Martin

We have some exciting news at Global Herbs as we welcome Roo Fox to the Global Herbs Team of Sponsored Riders! Lucie McNichol has had a change of direction, meaning we had space for a new 4* rider, and are delighted to welcome Roo to the team. We will also be holding a competition to find another rider to sponsor into 2016, so watch this space in the next few weeks!

For those of you who don’t know Roo, here is her story:

“I started my riding life with a very ill-tempered Shetland called Snowy that spent a lot of time biting, snorting and farting. Luckily he was on loan and when he left, my father got me a pretty chestnut mare who very obligingly took me round all manner of competitions and pony club activities. Through senior school I had my first taste of Eventing with Kings Cross, both of us first-timers and as green as grass. Jake went on to be an outstanding team horse with my cousin David Doel and I met an amazing five year old called Islington (nicknamed Frog) who is still with us today and is the most intelligent horse I have ever owned. After leaving Bristol University, I got Fleet Street (aka Tigger) in a swap for a rather temperamental show jumper and started him on his career that led us to Burghley last year. Since then I have built up a great string of talented horses, some of which had to sadly leave us to pay for the others, and a lovely group of owners who support me both at home and at events.”

Welcome to the team Roo!
