Championship Showing Success for Cassie Hartley

Cassie Hartley and Archeval Boutique Amadeus

SHOW rider Cassie Hartley and her ride, Archeval Boutique Amadeus, have been in outstanding form this season capturing a host of titles at the BSPS Summer Championships.

The 22-year-old from Stafford has had an excellent summer with her Intermediate Show Hunter Pony produced by the Staffordshire-based Katy Carter Show Team.

Cassie and the 10-year-old bay gelding took the Blue Riband and the HOYS Intermediate Show Hunter classes by storm and then went on to stand Intermediate Show Hunter Champion.

Following this success Cassie and Amoo then went on to collect the Ronnie Marmont Supreme and the Best of the Best Area Supreme titles, before being crowned Supreme Champion of Champions for 2015.

Working at Black Country Saddles as a Client Executive, Cassie juggles her time in the office taking the orders, shipping out saddles, invoicing and dealing with customers as well as her riding outside of work.

Said Cassie; “I really enjoy my job and it is great working in an environment where I get to pick and design my own saddles. I ride in the Classic Show saddle and Amoo really does move well when riding in it.

“Having so many friends who also ride and compete helps to provide great feedback on particular saddles, what they would like to see in any new developments and so on.

Cassie will be heading to HOYS seeking success after an excellent season and will be hoping to continue their great form in the Intermediate Show Hunters classes.
