A Very Tall Guy, Learning To Ride. With William Davenport

by | Apr 23, 2023

Hi everyone, so to introduce myself my name is William, new member of the team here! I’m 21 and from North Yorkshire. I started riding recently, about a year and a bit ago (seriously). Before then I had a pony when I was little and a few lessons a couple years before now but nothing more than that.

So, me and my Big Baby Doug (who is 18.3HH) will be doing a variety of things as that is what makes him happy, a bit of jumping, hacking, schooling; my main focus at the moment especially with it being winter is Dressage.

I’ve done a couple of competitions just preliminary, but I’m now looking to move onto novice tests with my current coal being able to confidently complete Elementary tests.

Being a tall guy, it would also be great to get more outreach and awareness to tall guys in this sport and just guys in general!
