“I could not have been more thrilled with the way my horses have performed this season, we all know there will be highs and lows with horses and in our sport, but I could not be more grateful to my wonderfully loyal owners with whom we all have so much fun along the way, my fantastic sponsors, the girls on the yard, headed up by my longstanding and loyal Head Girl, Lynn Swift, who all work so hard to make sure the horses are looked after, my home support team, all of whom make up ‘Team Wilson’ and to the Equestrian World Class Programme, the UK Sport’s National Lottery and most definitely not forgetting the horses who without there health and happiness it could not be possible”
Team Work, Team Wilson.
