Philip Spivey

"When your training, try to make them do it properly. Don't just say, well that was sort of good enough. No. It's got to be good enough so keep doing it until your are happy with it."

About Philip

Philip trained with former British Team Chef d'Equipe Ronnie Massarella before moving on to work for Robert Smith. In 2000 Philip joined the prestigious Traxdata showjumping team, which included the international riders Peter Charles, Tim Stockdale and James Fisher.

Philip and Worlds Fair became the Walwyn Novice Champions at the Royal Windsor Horse Show, while at CSI Le Touquet, Philip and Romanov took the Overall 7 Year Old Championship. October brought perhaps the highlight of his career to date as he triumphed on Romanov in the Horse & Hound Foxhunter Championship at the Horse of the Year Show. Philip's career has gone from strength to strength, culminating in Grand Prix wins and representing his country 8 times with Romanov on British Nations Cup teams including Aachen and Falsterbo super leagues.
