2019 in review, with Pegasus' youngest rider, Charlotte Wilson

We love hearing from our dedicated, wonderful team of Pegasus riders and this months comes from the youngest of them all!

Charlotte is just 8 years old and is the daughter, chief product tester and part time designer for Pegasus founder Kim. The first Pegasus piece was inspired by Charlotte and the name too came from Charlotte - learn more about that here.

How has 2019 been for you?

Very exciting! My first time riding at Royal International and HOYS, and an amazing BSPS summer championships. 

Whats been your high for this year?

Too many! Being placed at royal international and hoys was amazing. I also have won the first ridden Scottish bsps point championship and can’t wait till the awards next month. Although bsps champs is my favourite event because you get to play with all your friends and stay up late! 

What was your most exciting thing about HOYS?

I loved warming up in the top spec arena on the Friday night, because I wasn’t as nervous as I was in the class on Saturday when so many people were watching. I also loved watching the puissance on the Saturday night and seeing how high they jump. 

What do you want to achieve with your pony in the next 12 months? 

I’ve got a new pony for next year, Bambi and I’m very excited to be riding him. I’d like to get to HOYS and Royal International again, fingers crossed. He’s like black beauty! He will go to be produced by Craig Elenor & Sara Parrot but we will still have two ponies at home to keep me busy. 

Whats your favourite thing about your favourite pony?

My favourite pony is my show pony Milly , I’ve had her since I was 3 and she taught me lead rein and first ridden before we got my hunter pony I took to HOYS. i like cuddling into her when she’s lying down. I also love how she rummages in my pockets looking for mints.
