Welcome to our feature, 10 minutes in the tackroom. This is a regular feature where we ask riders, businesses and charities 12 questions and they have a maximum of 10 minutes to answer them.

This week in the saddle we have Private Holly Hall. Private Hall is part of the United Kingdom Armed Forces Equestrian Team (UKAFET). The UKAFET is made up from members from all our Armed Forces who carefully balance the challenge of serving the United Kingdom with pursuing their equestrian ambitions.

Tell us about your horse

Wkd San Remo is a 16h bay mare 9yo ISH. I've only had her 9 months but we've really come together very quickly as a team. She can be quite sassy and a bit of a handful at times but she loves to jump! She's very sweet natured and kind to handle. The longer we're together the better we're getting

Tell us your funniest horse related story?

Remo was recently in season and being extremely sassy. I was attending a UKAF training weekend and we were about to start jumping a course when I asked for canter. She put in a massive buck and at the same time squirted her lady business and her tail flicked it all over my arm and face!! Everyone else thought it was hilarious. I however, wiping it off my face wasnʼt that impressed!
