When asked about Demograaf, Faye commented “He is really cheeky, super careful and loves to go fast, he only likes speed. He is really intelligent, we make a good partnership because we know exactly where we are going to struggle, and we know our strong points. He loves to be centre of attention, especially when winning and parading!”

Faye has been riding Demograaf over the last 4 years. and has been competed in showjumping since she was 5 years old. Faye has big plans to travel to Spain at the end of the year for some international competitions.
