Phoebe takes on the big boys at Scone ODE

Phoebe White (pictured); finished 3rd in Preliminary behind Tim Boland and Sam Lyle at Scone Horse Trials One Day Event riding Glenugie Maverick last weekend
What a fantastic result for Phoebe as it's her first ride back after 3 years away from the horses.
"Maverick"is a 6 year old gelding from the James Archibald stable. He was too big to play polo so Serena took him on last year to introduce him to the world of eventing. He's now ready to go pre novice thanks to Phoebe's great ride.
