Back in Wellington at a new location in Palm Beach Point, Nancy Later recently returned from a summer in Europe training and competing her two FEI mounts Alexis-D (Archipel/Gardeulan) and Rubinski (Regazzoni/Marbod). Her trainer and mentor, Ellen Bontje (NED), International competitor and Olympian, helped prepare Nancy and Alexis-D for the Grand Prix.
"Ellen was super help for me moving up from the small tour to Grand Prix." said Later. "She has so much Grand Prix show experience herself that she has complete confidence in all the movements, and what it takes to prepare them." Ellen (Bontje) is so disciplined in her system and non-yielding in her commitment to throughness, that it was very good training for me and my mare. Now my goal is to be able to bring it all to the competition arena as well."
With a nice selection of imported and US bred horses for sale, Nancy is busy training and teaching, and preparing for the winter show season just about to begin.
