Amy Morris wins the 128cm Championship at Horse of the Year Show

Amy Morris made the long journey from Scotland exceptionally worthwhile as she launched Sunday's action at Horse of the Year Show with a fine victory in the 128cm Championship.

Amy, who is from the Borders, guided 14-year-old black mare Madonna to an emphatic victory at the Genting Arena in Birmingham. She was joined in the jump-off by just one other combination - Aimee Jones and Koda - from 22 starters. With Aimee clocking a time of 50.14 seconds, the pressure was then on Amy to deliver, but she produced a stylish performance, going clear in 45.80 seconds.

"It is an amazing feeling," said 12-year-old Amy. “I qualified both of my ponies at the same qualifier in May, and I have been really looking forward to coming here.  I didn't want to go too fast in in the jump-off in case I had a pole down, and she jumped really well. I am delighted.

"It means a lot to me to win here. I have always wanted to jump at Horse of the Year Show, and I had a lot of friends and family here to watch.”
