Hi, Charlie and Treacle will be at Olympia and it will be their first time! Treacle was really bred to race so should be doing the Shetland Grand National. They won and champion open at Three Counties (HOYS qualified), 2nd Lincoln Show in the HOYS qualified, they won and reserve champion at NCPA Staffs (Olympia qualifier), 1st Derby County, and at the BSPS Heritage Champs he had a 1st, 2x 2nds, a champion and 2 reserve championships. We are simply over the moon to have qualified for Olympia and can’t wait for the big Christmas Party!!! The duo also qualified Royal International on their first time out this year, in both the open and first ridden sections. Charlie is 11 and Treacle is 15. Thanks Avril. (A very proud mummy!!)
NPSW would like to wish Charlie and Treacle the best of luck at Olympia.
