Four of our younger horses have been going great guns in their last events of the season.

In between the senior international competitions David has been travelling to recently, these four have quietly been upping their game, delivering some excellent results at Novice level.

They are Sarah Warden’s Man About Town (Teddy);  Jane James’ Granito DHI (Pete), Mark Milligan’s Royal Crusade (Buster) and homebred Reybridge Riverdanz (Jimmy).

Between them they have achieved five wins, two seconds and a further four top ten placings, with eight double clears and minimal time faults in their last three events (Pontispool, Calmsden and Bicton).

A fantastic team to take through to next season but for now a well-earned holiday.

Thank you to all the hard-working teams across the country who contribute so much time and effort to make these events run like clockwork.  What would we do without you?
