“The original plan was for her horse, Sur La Mur [aka Pier], to travel to the USA in May 2020. This would provide this talented partnership an opportunity to gain experience competing together in the USA competitions prior to Julia commencing her freshman year of studies at boarding school.

“However, this was not to be. The global pandemic, the suspension of horse flights to/from Bermuda, changes in shipping schedules as well as the arrival of Hurricane Paulette resulted in Pier not arriving in the USA until mid-November – an entire year lapse since this team had competed together.

“Not to be deterred, Julia and immediately Pier focused on the exciting competition opportunities that lay ahead of them. And compete they did.
