Adele and Raffetouille’s personality match their discipline of choice, eventing. They both love the adrenaline rush! Working as a team, Adele and Raffetouille have been able to learn from some of the great names in the sport including; Lucinda Green, Karen O’Connor, Hawley Bennet, Robin Hahn, Chelan Kozak and Ingrid Klimke.
One of Adele’s favorite pieces of advice is from Karen O’Conner “Horses get good at what they practice”. She uses this as motivation to always practice on what is hard, because one day it won’t be hard anymore. They plan on taking 2019 by storm, entering the year at the prelim/CC12* level and finishing at the Intermediate level. For those interested, Preliminary has jumps up to 3’7” and Intermediate has jump heights up to 3’9”!
One of Adele’s favorite pieces of tack includes the ThinLine Trifecta Half Pad with Sheepskin Rolls. Before she added ThinLine pads to her daily tack set up, Raffey often suffered from a bit of a sore back. After only a week after the purchase of her first ThinLine pad, their massage therapist commented on how much better her back was feeling and hasn’t had any problems since. Adele finds herself experiences significantly less impact when jumping and riding.
