"Addington Manor by Margaret Benson Page 129

PETER Storr and his striking stallion Wild Dancer, last winter's medium open champion, had a confident 70% win in the advanced medium at Addington Manor.  The cocmbination has now qualified for the summer regional championships and  is free to concentrate on small tour classes.
"Peter's was easily the best presented test and exactly what you might expect from a rider of that calibre.  It was fluent, mistake-free and the horse was in good self-carriage," said judge Ann Nicell. "I also liked the second placed horse, Nemo III, ridden by Lisa Hopkins, as if showed great promise and there's a lot more to come."
The Medium qualifier also went to Peter, this time riding Julia Wetton's Holme Grove Prokofiev on their first outing together.  Julia, who trains with Peter is expecting a baby so handed the ride to him.
"He has a lovely temperament and is a very sensible ride, so this outing has been about getting to know each other in the arena," said Peter. "

...Peter Storr gave the eye-catching stallion Holme Grove Prokofiev a good ride in the medium open to take second place.  He took over the reins only three weeks ago from Julia Wetton, who is on maternity leave.
"This is a surprise pregnancy because after our eldest child, who is now 13 was born, my husband contracted cancer and we were told there would be no more children," explained Julia.
"Peter and I were students together at Catherston so I know him well"......
