Announced on 31 January by JS Elite Equestrian Wear: Proud to announce our new sponsored rider Daisy Jackson Dressage! Daisy is a very talented dressage rider and we look forward to seeing her in action in her Montar clothing!
Daisy is now the co-owner of Premier Into The Black. After a successful season together which included Blackberry’s first Regional Championships and being placed several times in the Under 25’s National Championships, Tracey, Blackberry’s breeder has gifted Daisy a share in this talented mare. The future looks exciting for them all!
Daisy is now proudly sponsored by Everything Horse UK, the official owners of Everything Horse Magazine. As Daisy has worked for EHUK as a dressage reporter from the first publication she is thrilled that the company, run by MD Suzanne Ashton, has now come on board as a sponsor.
Daisy has been invited to be filmed training her horses and teaching some of her clients for an ongoing series of training videos for Equestrian Pro TV. Videos will be able to be viewed via their website along with interviews and insights into Daisy’s dressage life.
Daisy has had a great few weeks with both horses who have both achieved some great scores and are now qualified for the Regional Championships and Under 25’s Championships. Tango has qualified at Medium and Advanced Medium achieving scores this season of up to 70%+ and Blackberry at Novice and Elementary with scores of up to 74%+ in their first season together.

The following announcement was released on the Larkshill Stud website:
I am delighted to announce a very special new partnership with talented young rider Daisy Jackson. I have known Daisy for 6 years and from the very first day I met her I was so impressed with her dedication, talent and passion for horses and the sport.
I have been very fortunate with my breeding programme and we have so many fantastic supporters and owners of Larkshill horses all around the world, I thought it was time to give a little something back, to someone who really deserves it. So I have given her a half share in one of my top young horses, Larkshill Divinity by Don Frederico out of St Pr St Ronja.
When Divinity was born we knew he was special, but then he should be - he is the full brother to a licensed Stallion, to a Bundeschampionate qualifier winner, a young horse Champion in South Africa to name but a few.
We decided to keep him and raise him as a stallion prospect and future Grand Prix horse but then I had the idea of sharing him with Daisy and see, if together, they can reach the top! For sure we will all have fun along the way and I will enjoy watching and supporting them and Daisy can have what I hope will be a top international horse without the fear of him ever being sold and her losing the ride.
Daisy is an exceptionally talented young rider and was a member of the GB Junior Squad 2012-2013 with Saint Swithens, who was sadly put to sleep in 2013 through illness. She is currently aiming for Young Riders with Fürst Larkshill by Fürst Heinrich, also a Larkshill baby, who she has trained herself up the levels and is competing Advanced Medium and training at PSG.
