Willberry recently received a wish for Amelie - at just 12 years old she has already taken part in one of the biggest battles, facing a malignant brain tumour.
A girl after Hannah's heart, Amelie’s first choice was a visit to see Carl Hester. Willberry certainly didn't blame her for wanting to meet the main man himself.
Willberry couldn't wait to get going with this wish and sprung into action. With a bit of his Wonder Pony magic he got in touch with Carl who (as ever) kindly opened the doors for Amelie to come and visit.
Once Carl was back from winning medals in WEG, a date was set in the diary...16th October. Amelie and her mum, Lisa, excitedly made their way to Glewstone Court Hotel near Ross-on-Wye, after all the last thing Willberry wanted was for them to have to face a long travel on the morning of being granted a special wish!!
After much anticipation the day of the wish finally arrived. Much to Willberry's relief his mission was a success, Amelie had an absolutely fantastic time.
Lisa kindly wrote - “I have to say, we had the most magical time, Carl, Alan and Valegro were just brilliant, Amelie could not believe her luck when Carl asked if she would like to ride Valegro! If you’re going to ride bareback for the first time, do it with style!!! Needless to say, Amelie has been on cloud nine ever since”. We reckon there was two Wonder Ponies working their magic with this wish...
Willberry would like to extend a massive thank you to Carl, Alan and Valegro for making Amelie’s day so special.
