Barbury Horse Trials in July really should have been renamed BarBERRY Horse Trials! Those little Berry ponies were everywhere.
One extra special pony there was Rockaberry, accompanying the amazing Jennifer Olivier whilst her Willberry Wish was granted. Jenny, her husband Tristan and their two horses arrived at the incredible Ladysmith Equestrian on the edge of the Barbury estate to be met by the incredibly kind and generous owners Rose and John. Once Rocco and Pico were settled, Jenny and Tristan had a chance to settle themselves (with thanks to the pool..) and recharge their batteries before Jenny’s lesson with a mystery instructor the next day...
In the morning Jenny and Rocco whizzed of to Barbury Horse Trials where she was met by none other than Emily King!
For a sneak insight into Jenny's lesson, or being a superwoman like her (Jenny only completed chemotherapy a few days before all this!), you can watch head cam footage here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoeVY2n07Ys If this wasn't enough the superhuman has also been back eventing, but not just that, she managed to get one of those red rosettes too!
Hannah wanted Willberry’s Wishes to give people a welcome distraction from the horror of treatment and make them feel ordinary… In Jenny's words, her time at Barbury didn't just make her feel ordinary it made her feel extraordinary.
Jenny is still #kickingcancersbutt and Rockaberry is firmly stuck by her side helping her through her radiotherapy. What an inspiring lady, Willberry is so glad he could help his friend Rockaberry give Jenny a smile or two.
Huge thank you to Benjamin Clark Photography for the gorgeous pictures!
