Kate bought this cracking mare at the start of her 4yo year with pure jumping career in mind. She is turning out to be incredibly clever and brave, as well as developing into a beautiful model with fabulous movement, despite not being the tallest mare.
Lola had a quiet 5yo year, being given the time to grow. She had a successful autumn campaign at BE100 level last season, jumping double clear and placing at all her events.
Having been bought by Lesley (Kate’s mum) and Sheena Hawkin early in 2020, Lola is set for an exciting future with Kate! Despite her very low mileage, she headed to Spain on the Sunshine Showjumping Tour this February and we were blown away by her performance and attitude. Despite only ever completing a handful of competitive rounds in her lifetime, she contested all the 6yo classes, which got up to 1.25m! Her worst result was one down and she even managed to come home with a winning plaque and rosettes! Lola’s eventing plans this season are focused around preparing her for a good result at the National 6YO Championships this autumn.
Lola’s can-do, positive attitude is a serious credit to her. Coupled with all her raw ability, she is sure to have a very bright and exciting future in any sphere.
