On Friday night at the Arena UK Major Showjumping Championships, India & home produced 8-year-old Florida VDL jumped all 5 rounds clear in the Puissance finished up clearing 2m15 and sharing the spoils alongside Murray Mcleish & Chelsea Skelton.
This was the 8-year-olds first ever Puissance and he loved it! Excited now to have been asked to go to HOYS to jump the famous red wall on Saturday evening!
The girls had a fantastic show at Hickstead with all horses jumping in the famous main ring.
Atiya (only 13) & Chesterfield Z jumped fantastic placing everyday and then jumping a very fast double clear in the 1m20 Championship in the main arena for a close 2nd place!
India & Florida VDL jumped in the 1m40s in the main ring, and Billy Coleman qualified for the 7 Year Old Championship where he was unlucky to just have one fence down round a strong 1m35 A10 track, he was also clear in the Talent Seekers 7 Year Old HOYS qualifier.
The girls had a fantastic show in Lier, Azelhof, Belgium for their CSI**/*/YH* show in August.
India and Billy Coleman performed very well in the 7 Year Old classes including a 2nd place finish only beaten by 5* rider Bertram Allen. India also had a fantastic show on 8 year old Florida VDL who was clear 2 out of the 3 days in the 1m40 classes and stepped up very well in their 2nd World Rankings class for one mistake. Atiya also had a good yet slightly unlucky show with Chesterfield Z in the CSI* 1m20 classes.
It is fair to say the girls had a fantastic show in Wierden for their Youth Nations Cup Show 2018. Atiya was 7th in the Children On Horses class on the first day with Chesterfield Z. She was then once again representing Great Britain on the Children On Horses team where she jumped double clear for Team GB in the Nations Cup and jumped double clear to come 4th in the Grand Prix!! She and Chester didn’t touch a fence all week; a clean sheet!
India also had a successful show with her talented 7 year old Billy Colman who jumped fantastically every day in the Juniors 1m35 classes picking up 7th place along the way!
