Rose Foley is a Dressage Rider on the #horsescotland Performance Programme.
Based in: Barstobrick (Dumfries and Galloway)
I have been bought up with horses and my first dressage competition was when I was 8 years old in a 10 and under class on a pony who has been in our family for over 30 years. My parents then bought me an un backed 3 year old 13.hh pony, I backed and produced him then we started to get involved with BD youth, we finished our competition partnership in 2018 and ended Scottish novice freestyle champions before getting offered the ride on cordici k.
Before I started PFEI I got all my inspiration from Phoebe Peter’s and she has been a great support since I met her at the winter championships in 2020 and often congratulates us after a big competition. Lottie Fry is also very inspiring achieving so much at a young age.
Being part of the horsescotland Performance Squad will enable me to access everything that I need to be the best possible athlete and to work towards fulfilling my ambition to compete at a European championship.
