“Campella is the best horse that anyone has ever bought for me. She is a real star and hopefully what British Showjumping needs to strengthen our international campaign. Once she has settled in at our yard in Yorkshire, I hope to start my campaign with her as my top horse and compete for a place on the Olympic team. The purchase of Campella is a massive boost for everyone concerned. We are all extremely driven and focused to get back into competing at the leading shows around the world and without doubt Campella has the ability to compete with the best” said Scott.
