Previous Ponies

These original members of Team DC have all moved on to new homes but formed such an important part of Anya’s career that they will always hold a special place in our hearts.


Training is the backbone of Anya’s showjumping journey. She is always eager to learn, develop and improve her skills, and this determination and focus has driven her to where she is today. Anya is lucky to have a fantastic team around her supporting her as she puts in the hard work.

She has been by her side ever since, supporting any decisions she makes and being there for her through all the highs and lows, making sure first and foremost that she is always enjoying herself on this crazy journey!


Lydia Christopher

Lydia is our wonderful groom, working tirelessly behind the scenes making sure that the ponies (and Anya!) are pampered, prepped and ready to go both in and out of the arena.
