Charlotte is based in Monmouth, running her own yard called Armstrong Equine and trains with Katie Williams
Charlotte has a variety of eventers and youngsters:
- Chateau D Quem Z is a 8yo mare and has just qualified for a CCI**. Charlotte is hoping that they both will step up to advanced this year. Charlotte is aiming to take her to Blenheim in the CIC*** 8/9yo next year.
- Charlotte's miracle horse – Fairytales Lover, 10 yo TB. whoim Charlotte bred and was told a few years ago to have him put to sleep as he had such bad navicular and had torn both his deep digital flexor tendons. Charlotte and her team manage him really well to keep him in top condition and most importantly, sound! He is has just come back from completing their first CCI** over in Ireland, and Charlotte is hoping to get him qualified for a CIC*** this year.
- A horse that never ceases to shock Charlotte – Hoowoodno, who is a 9yo ISH. He was bought 2 years ago from a local sales as a “naughty horse” and the plan was to complete a few events and then to sell him on. He is still with Charlotte now and has jumped clear around 2 x Intermediates this year and has got his CIC** qualification. He is a big chunky Irish horse, who is referred to as the super cob! He is now ridden by Charlotte Byrnes, an up and coming junior rider, who has completed her first BE100 2 weeks ago and came 2nd so a very promising start!
- Super 6yo - Diola VD JHope Z, who qualified for Osberton 4yo and 5yo championships over the last 2 years. She has just stepped up to Novice level and jumped a fabulous double clear so Charlotte is aiming her for the 6YO championships at Osberton this year! She is a very special horse who has a very big jump so Charlotte tries not to run her too much to save her legs for when she goes up the levels!
- Charlotte has a field full of young horses and has just broken in the oldest – a 4yo by Treliver Decanter/Dimaggio/Negro mare, aiming for the 4yo classes.
- Charlotte's foal of last year gained a high first premium in the BEF Futurity class at Hartpury College and he is bred by Balou Star/Quick Star/ Negro.
- Last but not least, Charlotte has young stock with fabulous breeding by; No Limit, Numero Uno, Timolin, Negro, and Primitive lines, and cannot wait to see what these guys will all achieve.
Charlotte's aim of course is to get to Badminton and she feels that this is now a possibility for her in the next few years.
