Rosemary Granger and Glory

No Rosemary has not been ordained, Glory is the name of her skewbald mare.

Rosemary purchased Glory from Great Windsor Park for jumping. Glory got a surprise when she stepped out the lorry to a windswept hill in South Northumberland. Rosemary got a surprise when having parted company with Glory several times she realised Glory was a splendid jumper but that was where it ended.  So they started endurance and found a sport they both love. After a year off with hock problems Glory and Rosemary started again. This time there was no stopping them.  Such a lovely mare came to the attention of UKCC endurance coach Rachel Atkinson who has happily mentored the pair for the last year. They also attend regular lessons and discovered that twice weekly long reining kept them both fit (and the dog) Work on the gallops at Fourstones was added to the mix and riding out with local endurance friends Janet Lennard and Barbara Austin.

At Dialstone this year the pair attempted their first 60 with a vet gate and got a grade one. They have just followed this with success at the 50 km at the Scottish Champs, where the steep hills, rain and humidity slowed them down. But Glory proved to be a star at vet gate procedures, rosemary and husband Ian shaved 2 mins off her presentation time (6 mins) and reduced her final heart rate by 2 beats. Well done!
