THIS year’s Olympia International Horse Show will be a record-breaking sixth visit for veteran superstar Maybe and rider Samantha Bell.
Now 22-years-old the grey gelding has qualified for the Veteran Championships at the prestigious London venue for the last five years and their recent qualification brings their forthcoming winter visit to an amazing six year run.
Based near Nottingham, Samantha has owned Maybe for 17 years and the Irish Draught cross Warmblood veteran recently proved a huge hit with the judges at Leek and District Agricultural Show.
Keen to keep Maybe in the best possible condition and show ready, Samantha follows a TopSpec feeding regime.
During the summer months Maybe can easily gain weight so Samantha feeds him TopSpec Senior Lite Feed Balancer moving to TopSpec Senior Feed Balancer throughout the winter.
The pair started their day at the Leek Show by winning their veteran class before securing the championship.
Explains Samantha: “I was just so pleased to win the championship and qualify for Olympia but we then went and won the Ring Championship followed by the Supreme of Show, it was just an amazing day and Maybe was fantastic.
“He is such a star and still looks in superb condition. We keep to veteran competitions now but still hack out and jump him at home, he is full of life and energy.”
Samantha also shows Welsh Sections Bs and Cs and has a hair and beauty business that keeps her busy when not competing.
