Tbt— We started our career together when he was 5 and I was 15. He gave me a nose bleed on our first meeting… but since then nothing but dreams come true 😄… the @hicksteadevents derby is a historical class world wide but I think it has an extra prestige for the British. 🇬🇧 This is one of my all time favourite tbt- clear round & 2nd place in the Hickstead derby to my amazing uncle @johnwhitakerint first attempt. He was 8 and I was 18. On my hero of a horse Locarno 62. That particular clear round gave me a feeling of shock and excitement I’ll never forget, after watching my hero’s battle that course for years, I couldn’t quite believe it had happened & it made my whitaker grandparents very proud! 😃😃 #thankyou #locarno62 #derbys #gp’s #worldcups #nationscups #championships #medals #happiness #dreams #memories #lucky #salute #thosespecialones😍 @naylorsonline @dodsonhorrell @devoucoux @easibedding @listerclipping @horsequest_uk @celerisboots @charlesowenhelmets @marinaswhitaker @stevenwhitakerinternational ❤️ @amydm88 @dawn.makin
