Ep 48 - With Shiwon Green, The Galloping Housewife
58:28Today's Episode with the galloping housewife was a real story about when the extremely ordinary becomes extraordinary just by continually keeping going. Shiwon Green is probably the least successful half decent rider New Zealand has ever produced. An abject failure at eventing, she spent a year in a showjumping yard in the US where she was laughed out of the arena on her first ride. On returning to New Zealand, nearing middle age and embarking on parenthood, she thought she’d do the sensible thing and give dressage a go. Her first dressage horse was a 10 yo Stationbred with a world class spook. Together they defied all expectations to progress from Novice to the International Grand Prix arena, managing not to win a single notable trophy on the way. Shiwon’s next horse made the trip to the UK with her and as soon as he started scoring in the mid 70’s at small tour level, blew a suspensory and never returned to top level competition. Third time wasn’t to be lucky either, with Shiwon and her first fancy European warmblood being the first kiwi combination to qualify for the World Young Horse Championships with a score of 88%, only to go lame in the warm up with an obscure degenerative bone disease. Shiwon hasn’t given up on her dreams though, she still intends to win at least one dress rug before she quits. She lives somewhere in the UK with her husband, two mostly housetrained teenagers, a ridiculous designer dog and a fluffy white cat.
