The 2013 Remi Stud scholarship's inaugural winner, Isabella Wilkinson-McIntyre (pictured above), has proved to be a very worthy ambassador, and in turn, supported other young riders through her dedication and encouragement, so that they can believe it is possible to attain their dreams too. 

Here, she shares her story with Remi Livingstone S...

"Doc has just come back into work in the last couple of months after his rest after been broken in. He is progressing amazingly well (especially for his size, seeing he is over 17.2hh!) and recently had his first outing at the Festival of Dressage in Brisbane, representing Lauries As in the stallion parade. Although that electric environment was probably not the most ideal situation to put Doc in being his first time out under saddle, he handled himself like an absolute gentleman and didn't out a foot wrong! He went around as though he was a professional.

Due to his size and the fact that he is still high behind, we have decided not to rush Doc's training and rather allow him to grow into himself a little more before we start pushing him. In saying this, I am hoping to take him out to a few small competitions in the next couple of months to grow his competition experience. 

I can't thank everyone enough for this incredible opportunity to work with a young horse as talented and kind-hearted as Doc. It truly has been a dream come true and I cherish opportunities we have had so far, even knowing our journey has only just begun!"

This annual Scholarship is awarded to a very deserving Young Rider who has the talent and dedication in either Dressage, Showing or Eventing, but needs financial assistance to purchase a horse of their dreams.

Apply now for the Remi Stud Scholarship 2018/19, a unique opportunity.
