Richmond (2) 2020 - find out more here


Friday at Richmond Horse Trials in beautiful North Yorkshire proved fruitful for Izzy Taylor who took two of the classes, the Baileys Horse Feeds Intermediate Section B riding Happy Days and the An Eventful Life Novice Section H riding Cooley On The Cards

We’re looking forward to watching the winning video of Cooley On The Cards, a seven-year-old mare who took her first win on her dressage score of 23.5 while the eight-year-old Happy Days added just 2.8 time penalties on cross country in a field that saw just one combination – Emilia Proctor riding Larksbelle, who finished sixth – make the time


      A win at a local event for Nicola Wilson on Hawk Eye     


Local Olympian Nicola Wilson took the Aiskew Equine & Pet Supplies Intermediate Section A on board Hawk Eye, who wins here after various top three finishes at this level during the season, and Emily King has followed up her Intermediate win at Cholmondeley on her own Valmy Biats with today’s win in the Rowen Barbary Horse Feeds Intermediate Section E

World Champion Ros Canter and Pencos Crown Jewel bounced back from their tumble at Burgham with a win in the M Metcalfe & Sons Open Intermediate Section D and Sophie Barlow produced the second fastest cross country round, with just 2.4 time penalties added to her dressage score, to win the British Horse Society Open Intermediate Under 21 Section C

New Zealand’s James Avery did a ‘one-two’ winning the Log Company Open Intermediate Section F on board Gorgeous DHI (a horse we have loved for a while now, produced by Heidi Woodhead) and taking second place on Cooley Lord Lux, who was ahead of his stable mate in the dressage but Gorgeous DHI was faster on cross country. It seems that Yorkshire is agreeing with James …

Josie Proctor no doubt had a celebratory coffee after winning the Caffeine Rush Novice Section G on board Top Gun VII with a score of 25.2 ahead of Izzy Taylor on Jaeger Master, the only combination to make the time on cross country in this class and Oliver Townend on Medusa Van De Kooldries in third.

Amazingly Oliver didn’t win anything on Friday at Richmond but he’ll be back on Saturday for the Novice classes so check back then and see how things went ….
