Joe bought Zoppah at the end of 2018, having already had experience at CCIS3* level with his previous owner, Rose Boyce. The pair were based with Kevin McNab in 2019, getting plenty of Novice mileage under their belts and rounded off the season at Burnham Market TNC2* before Joe started at Birmingham University. Zoppah was kept in work and training with Joe’s mum, Jane (and one of Kate’s very first riding instructors!), over the winter until moving to DE HQ. The pair are planning to consolidate on their Novice experience this summer, before working towards some International events this autumn.
