Valeido's Sunshine and Valido's Starlight, the two FEI dressage ponies of British team gold medal winner Rebecca Bell, have both been sold but are retained for Great Britain.
Bell's number one dressage pony Valido's Sunshine, a 12-year old Rhinelander mare by Valido x Marieton's Jasper, has been sold to the Lickley family. Isobel Lickley is a British Pony Progress squad rider on former British team pony Gigolo (Claire Gallimore, Bethany Horobin) and she has now added Valido's Sunshine to her string. Isobel is trained by her mum Nicola who is a small tour rider.
Valido's Starlight, an 11-year old Rhinelander mare by Valido x Capri Moon, has become the new ride of the 13-year old Megan Barratt.
Rebecca Bell has been a member of the British pony team that competed at the European Pony Championships three years in a row from 2013 - 2015. She won team bronze in 2013, team silver in 2014 and team gold in 2015.
