2021 EquinePure Ambassador

Phoebe Foulkes

I am a 22 year old FEI dressage rider, coach and judge based in Mount Pleasant, South Australia currently competing at Small Tour level (Prix st George & Inter 1). I started my dressage career in 2016 as a working pupil for Grand Prix Dressage rider Cooper Oborn (NZ). Since then I have continued to establish my career as a professional rider, working out of my family property in the Adelaide Hills.

I am currently a full time dressage rider; coaching riders and training horses of all levels and working towards my EA coaching accreditation. I am also a qualified F level (Novice) dressage judge, and in the process of upgrading to Elementary (E) level. Alongside coaching and judging, I have a growing team of competition and young horses which I intend to train and compete through the levels. My main focus and goal is to compete at Grand Prix level across Australia, and produce young horses through to FEI. 

I have recently started using EquinePure pellet bedding in Ellanbrae Jeniro’s stable as his old bedding was becoming very dusty and causing him to cough. I noticed his coughing was getting worse each time I worked him and mucking out his old bedding always made me sneeze. Since using the Equine Pure pellets his coughing has reduced dramatically as well as my sneezing! I have now moved my two other stabled horses (Connor and Larry) onto the pellet bedding and I could not be happier. As Larry sustained an injury to his hock, the pellet bedding is very cushioning and super soft for him to stand on during the night. It has also halved my mucking out time which means I now have more time for working horses. In the future, I hope to be able to stable all my horses using Equine Pure pellets!

As a rider and trainer, I truly believe that to achieve the best results in the arena, the horses need to feel their best outside the arena. Providing them with a dust free, cushioning bed means their rest time at night is maximised. Therefore being able to represent Equine Pure pellets would be a real privilege to me. I regularly compete at local dressage club days, championship events in SA and the major interstate competitions. I also promote my competition results and sponsors on my social media platforms (Facebook & Instagram), and I have a growing follower base. My social media accounts are:

‘Fire and Magic’ aka Connor 9yo WB x ASH

KP Nantamboo x Contango x Contango II PSG Level, training GP

I have trained Connor through the levels starting at Prep when he was a green broken 4yo in 2016. Together we have achieved many results and I am very excited for his future. A few of our achievements together include; 2018 Australian National Youth Medium Champion, 2018 SA State Youth Elementary and Medium Champion, 2018 SA Spring Advanced Champion and 2019 SA State Small Tour Champion. My next goal for Connor is to compete in the U25 Grand Prix circuit, aiming for our first start at this level at the 2021 Australian National Championships in October.

‘Ellanbrae Jeniro’ aka Nero 6yo KWPN

De Niro x Johnson x Metall Medium level, training Advanced

Nero was bred at Ellanbrae stud in Victoria and purchased mid 2017. Since beginning his competition career at the end of 2018, Nero has been very successful. He was the 2019 Youth Prelim Reserve Champion at the Victorian Youth Dressage Championships, 2019 SA State Youth Prelim Champion and Reserve Novice Youth Champion. His most recent competition results include 2021 Novice Champion at the Boneo Summer Championships. He has also just moved up to medium level, winning both tests at his first medium start with over 70% in each class. Nero will continue to develop at medium level this year with an advanced start planned for the end of 2021.

‘Revelwood Opulence’ aka Larry 3yo WB

00Seven x Lanthan x Donnerhall

Larry is a recently broken in 3yo gelding who was purchased from Revelwood stud at the start of 2020. He sustained an injury 5 days after he arrived home resulting in surgery and 3 months box rest. He is now going happily under saddle and we are very excited about his future. Larry will continue his education at home over the next few months and we hope to have him out competing towards the end of 2021.

The babies’ aka Aber Santos MI (Simon) & Finest Light BHI (Hugh)

Simon and Hugh are both 2yo’s who will turn 3 in August and October respectively. They were purchased from Mulawa and Brockhurst stud and both possess qualities that I look for in a young future dressage horse. They have both begun pre-breaking work and will be started under saddle after winter. We look forward to having them join the competition team towards the end of 2022.
