Sponsored Showjumping Rider Carla Bowman
Carla runs her own equestrian business in producing young horses through the grades of competition from novice level to Grand Prix show jumping and dabble in a little dressage too. Her goals are to keep producing horses for top level competition and she would love to see a horse I’ve produced represent Great Britain!
She has a passion for giving horses the best start and helping riders achieve their goals. A lot of riders would probably say her favourite word would probably be straightness as she tends to use that a lot when she’s on the ground. Carla is a workaholic but loves to see horses progress with confidence because they want to do the job.
Some of her biggest achievements would be producing 3 Grand Prix jumpers, one has just been picked for the nations cup team, producing a couple of dressage horses through the grades and seeing one of the most talented young horses out in Holland jumping consistently after being started with her, a future team horse for sure.
Carla started at a very young age jumping ponies and went through pony club then onto BSJA. Her mum took her all over the country to jump qualifiers to give her a leg up in this game, it’s a lot of work but dreams can become reality.
Her horses are
Quality street – Sweetie is the oldest one she has, a 10yr old chestnut mare jumping Grand Prix successfully a horse she calls my little pocket rocket 🚀.
Inspiratie W aka Sprite – He has just stepped up to 1.40 and she hope to be competitive in some bigger classes with him as soon as he gets to grips with the height, he is a real character who everyone likes.
Inelaheleen W – An 8yr old mare with a lot of ability a late starter having had a couple of foals a real sweet mare who so far has been a pleasure to produce.
Carla has a few young ones that will be making an appearance as and when they are ready to go and compete she’s a firm believer in they have to be right to be able to enjoy the job.
