Lucy is based near Hungerford in Berkshire. She has been Eventing for over 25 years and has competed at Advanced International level on horses she has produced from youngsters and also for owners. She has competed in France, Italy, Portugal, Ireland and Holland on many occasions. Lucy has now scaled down her team of eventers and will only be competing 3 horses of her own, all of which have enormous potential.

Piping Rock is a 6yr old gelding by Irish TB Stallion Loughehoe Guy and out of a Connemara x TB mare who was purchased in May 2018

Cruise on Jackson is an 8yr old Irish sport horse by Cruise On; a son of Cruising and out of a Quick Star mare. He had been campaigned as a pure show jumper until May 2018 when he was also purchased. He is currently in training as a potential eventer and had 2 wins at his very first dressage competition with Lucy in August 2018.

Chinook de M’Aurea a French anglo arab x selle francais, another 6yr old who will be out Eventing in 2019.

Another member of the Team and not to be forgotten is Blackberry, “Briarswoods Negroponte”. He is a 4yr old by the great Negro, father of Valegro who needs no introduction. His mother is by Gribaldi KWPN another top sire of dressage horses and the sire of Totilas. He is already 17.2 hh, black with 4 white socks and absolutely stunning, with the most fantastic brain and temperament. He is currently mainly just hacking out and will not be put under any pressure to compete for the time being.

Aside from Eventing Lucy has 2 other main passions, one is for animal welfare and all aspects of veterinary care. She first got in touch with SyncThermology in 2013 having known of several horses over the years with non specific, difficult to diagnose, poor performance issues. Lucy fully understands the importance of meticulous maintenance and management of competition horses, particularly event horses and feels this technology is a valuable tool which will evaluate the whole horse, will be the horse's voice and help identify whether there’s an underlying physical dysfunction, rather than what may be perceived as a behavioural problem. The fact that it will also detect abnormality within tendons and ligaments before structural lesions are present is very helpful when monitoring equine athletes throughout their competitive life.

Lucy’s other passion is travel and she loves exploring new places whenever possible.

Lucy is one of our Senior Imaging Technicians and runs her business in the South of England, she has been involved in research projects and zoology work during her time with the company. She is currently focusing more on providing equipment rental to other team technicians at present due to time restraints with her own horse's training and competing schedule which was always her plan and is her main priority for the next few years.
