Our Pure event riders have been on flying form with several wins and top 10 finishes. Sponsored rider Kevin Mcnab rode his young horse Vidalgo to a win at his first Novice at Aston -Le-Walls, whilst young rider Ellie Fredericks took 2nd place on Balaero in their first Pony Trials, as well as a 3rd place at Broadway in the Novice riding Mandorior. Harriet Upton took the top spot in the BE100 at Firle Place riding Twinkle, who has a very special owner, HM The Queen!
#PureTalent Rider Results
It’s been a busy month for our supported and sponsored riders, who have been reporting some brilliant results across the board.
New to our portfolio of Pure Talent supported riders, British Showjumping rider Georgina Round had a fantastic few days at Chepstow International, culminating in her first international win in the 1.25m speed class as well as a further top 10 finish riding Gusto. Gus is powered by Pure Condition.
Hannah Thorne has also had a winning month, taking top spot at the North Somerset Show with a double clear in the 1.10m as well as a respectable 3rd place in the 1.15m speed class riding Cinderella (powered by Pure Performance).
After recently returning from competing at the Badminton Mitsubishi Motors Cup with Brynithon Silver Locket, Megan Elphick took another of her rides, Commons Delight, to Howick where they went double clear to win their section in the BE90 completing their regional final qualification. You can watch Megan’s vlogs on both events on her Youtube channel (Elphick.Event.Ponies).
Premier league season is now well underway for our dressage riders, as well as many trying to gain last minute points for that all-important summer regional qualification. Chloe Vell and Izzy Chaplin both headed to Cheshire for Somerford Premier League, where Izzy took 4th place in the u25 Grand Prix on Vincente II, a proud moment as this was her first at the level in front of international judges!
Vincente II is powered by Pure Performance, which Izzy says gives him the perfect amount of energy without getting ‘fizzy’ to dance around the demanding movements of a Grand Prix test. Chloe also had a great show at Somerford, producing a personal best in the Intermediate I riding her 17.3hh gelding Gredstedgards Stuntman, who is powered by Pure Condition.
