It will be a first Badminton and first at the level for British rider Julia Norman (31) who is based in Wiltshire at the Windmill Stud near Swindon.

Julia comes from an equestrian family; her father James Hussey competed up to three-star during the 90’’s and her mother the late Gill Hussey supported Julia though her early riding career and spotted Carryon Bobby out hunting. Julia began competing through Pony Club and school teams (Stonar and Dauntsey) and after leaving school qualified as a Quantity Surveyor (MRICS) before turning to eventing professionally. She now breeds and produces event horses as well as schooling racehorses at the Windmill Stud. She is also a qualified snowboard instructor and enjoys hunting with the VWH and Berks and Buck Draghounds.

Julia also rides several other Advanced horses including the homebred Wizard of Aus (by Catherston Springsteen). She trains with Tracie Robinson, Andrew Fletcher and Jeremy Scott .

Julia (nee Hussey) is married to Tristan Norman.

Carryon Bobby Boy is a British-bred 14-year-old gelding. Bred by Johanna Hedberg of Angley Stud in Kent, he is by the well-known jumping sire Lauriston out of a Swedish Warmblood mare by the international grand prix jumper Robin Z (Ramiro-Alme) who stood at the National Stud in Sweden.  He was purchased by his owner Dr Diana Wethred as a four-year-old and began competing in the Pony Club as well as hunting with the Avon Vale and Berks and Bucks Drahgounds. He then spent several seasons team chasing with the Wishful Thinkers and the Boring Gorings before turning his hoof to eventing at the age of nine since when he has been produced by Julia.
