Saturday, the fourth day of the Dodson & Horrell International Horse Show, was hailed a success having played host to Ladies Day, a family dog show, BETA Safety Hub where visitors and riders, such as Ben Hobday, learnt CPR, and could also get a taste of riding on a simulator dressage horse.
Puissance first-timers Mark Edwards with Montreuxs Tale, won the eVetDrug CSI3* Puissance, jumping to an impressive 2.19m. “It was the first time for both of us. A new experience, and what a way to do it. This horse has jumped Nations Cups and he won the Queen’s Cup last year. He’s a really good Grand Prix horse and will jump in the Dodson & Horrell CSI3* Grand Prix 1.50m on Sunday,” said Edwards.
James Smith clocked up another Bolesworth victory in the Bloomfields Horseboxes CSI3* 1.40m with 10-year-old bay mare, Holly, owned by Nicola Jamison. “This class was the main aim for Holly this week. She jumped great in the first round. I watched a bit of the jump off and watched Anthony and thought he would be difficult to beat, so I took the same lines as him, and was just slightly quicker.” Smith finished on a score of 33.45 seconds, with second place going to Anthony Condon on 33.50.
The Bolesworth CSI1* 1.30m was won by Red Morgan on True Blue III. “He felt fantastic today. He was fresh in the first round, even after two days of jumping, so it was nice to do a steady clear and settle him back down, then he was super eager in the jump off.”
