All eyes are on HOYS this week but, meanwhile, there’s been no shortage of outstanding results for local riders elsewhere.

At the VHS Championship Show, Philippa Coates Wilson claimed back the title she had won with Aytounhill Midnight Express (Billy) in 2017 by taking the Inhand Supreme with Laithehill Pasha (Buzzby).

At the NCPA Northern spectacular at Northallerton, Emma Boardman’s Laithehill Crown Prince won the Open M&M, then took the Championship and Overall Supreme of show.

Milly Phillipson won Novice First Ridden and the Reserve with Heniarth Teacake, plus the Novice Small Breeds Championship and the silver medal. Amy Graham was second in both the Novice and Restricted Show Pony.

At the same show, Richard Nichol and Perrault won the Ridden RoR class.

At BSPS Scotland, Lucy Benson and Jock won the Open 122cm class, while sister Emma won the Novice 133cm with Bill, and the Championship and was second in the Nursery to secure a ticket for the Highland.

Annie Sandell made a spectacular return to the saddle, just a couple of weeks after giving birth to her second child.

At the Springfield Equestrian Extravaganza show, she won the 65cm, 75cm and 85cm classes plus the Chase me Charlie topping out at 1.10, was named points leader of the day and won the 2019 season Points overall.

Apologies to Kate Pattinson, winner of the 95cm class in the Eventer Derby at Frenchfield with Even Sarco on their first senior outing together, after her name was missed out last week.

Elisha Wilson, Jodii Moffat and Shona Murdoch revived the old Northern Tearaways team when they went to the Atherstone Hunt Team Chase to fulfil Elisha’s dream of taking part in Team Chasing, along with Nottingham-based fourth member Gracie de la Haye.

Unfortunately, Shona’s horse was lame and Gracie suffered a tack malfunction, putting them out of the running for rosettes. However, they went clear, jumping hedges and rails of up to 1.20m and are having another go in Derbyshire next week.

In the National Hunter Trials Championship at Eland Lodge, Steve Hartley and Chris were fourth out of 138 starters in the 80cm class.

At the BD Team Quest Regional finals, the Cumbrian Salute team of Leighanne Little, Shirley Foster, Christine Hardman and Sian Routledge came fifth out of 15, narrowly missing out on qualifying for the national championships.

The team had won five out of six qualifying rounds and the overall Championship locally and finished sixth on the north-west leaderboard out of forty-two teams.

In British eventing, Joshua Wareing was eighth in the Novice at Alnwick Ford, with Ballyvadd Sarco. Leanne Graves and Showcase were seventh in the BE100RF and Claire Paisley and Donna Keiseada eighth in the BE100.

The event was abandoned after day one following heavy overnight rain.
