SCHOOLGIRL Faye Sadler has realised her childhood dream of riding in the Horse of the Year Show.
Faye, a pupil at Farlingaye High School in Woodbridge, has spent countless hours riding in forests near her home and taking part in numerous shows.
But when she finally came to the show ring in the country's most prestigious show, she almost fainted through nerves.
Faye, 17, recovered her composure and she and her pony, Jack, came third out of ten finalists in the South Essex Insurance Brokers Search for a Star category.
Faye and her pony, whose show name is New Oaks Confidential Secret, have only been together for five weeks.
Faye, from Sutton, near Woodbridge, said: "It has been my dream to ride in the show at Wembley Arena. It is the most prestigious show ever.
