Time was of the essence on the final day of the Equi-Trek Bramham International Horse Trials as riders battled it out in the showjumping

Kitty King was crowned champion of the Equi-Trek CCI-L4* on Vendredi Biats finishing on a score of 27.2, making up for the disappointment of retiring on cross country at Badminton in May

“It’s been great to put Badminton behind us and come here to show what the horse can do, because I have always really believed in him and have really known he’s a capable, talented horse. Its finally come together at the right time for him” said Kitty

 

      Gemma Tattersall and Jalapeno III

 

Gemma Tattersall had two rides on horses by the great 5* winning stallion Chilli Morning for two top six finishes.

Gemma and Jalapeno III, a fairly new ride for her that she has been show jumping in the off season, were close behind securing second place on 30.9 points with just one rail. She also secured sixth place on Chilli Knight, by the 5* winner Chilli Morning, after a double clear round finishing on their dressage score of 34.1.

“I am unbelievably proud of Chilli Knight” said Gemma “’I’ve had him right from the beginning, knew him from the day he was born and, at nine years old and to finish on his dressage score at Bramham, is a big deal for any horse let alone a young horse. And then to finish second on a the new ride Jalapeno … I just couldn’t be happier to get such a great result”

Selina Milnes finished in third place on a total score of 31.6 on Iron IV after 1.2 penalties in the showjumping.

“I’m so proud of him, he jumped his socks off today” says Selina.

 

       Cathal Daniels and Rioghan Rua

 

Irish Olympian Cathal Daniels   won the British Horse Feeds U25 CCI4*-L, jumping double clear with Rioghan Rua to finish on their dressage score of 33.7. The overnight leader Yasmin Ingham on Sandman 7 had a fence down late on course in the showjumping   to take second place on 34.1 and secure the U25 Championship as the top British rider . Britain’s Will Rawlins also had a fence down, finishing overall in third place on a total score of 36.9 but admitted ‘I’m really, really chuffed, it’s my first podium at international level’

“Today it shows the quality of a horse, fitness levels and all the training that goes into it with the background team and staff, you just don’t rock up and do that … I’m thrilled” said Cathal while Yasmin was happy to accept the blame for the rolled pole

“I think whatever happened today I would be absolutely delighted, he’s exceeded all expectations. I couldn’t really fault his performance today, it was really my error with the fence I had down"
