PERSONALITY PROFILE: DULCIE SANDERS
Dulcie has just celebrated her 17th birthday this week, beware other road users!! She has been at Hammersream for 5 years and has become an integral part of the team, being invaluable on the eventing circuit as Susie’s number 1 groom!
When she came she had Annie with whom she attained many rossettes and competed at Trailblazer show jumping finals at Stoneleigh. She sadly grew out of Annie ( who is now giving Mary fun) and has a horse called Cooper who she won her first dressage competition on and is soon to start eventing him.
