Thomas Hooper wins The Stable Company HOYS 138cms Qualifier at Port Royal Equestrian Centre

The sun shone down on each of the thirty-nine starters contesting The Stable Company HOYS 138cms Qualifier on Sunday and it proved to be a competitive class to watch for all of those attending the Pony Premier Show at Port Royal Equestrian Centre in Holme on Spalding Moor, York.

With three places on offer for The Stable Company HOYS 138cms Championship Final held at the prestigious Horse of the Year Show in October, a highly fought class unfolded. Rounds one and two saw poles fall to leave just seven determined combinations to do battle against the clock in the final jump off.

Thomas Hooper, aged 13, from Brentwood, Essex made his journey up the country worthwhile when he emerged as the winner of the qualifier on board Misty Bay II, a 14 year-old bay mare owned by Richard Hooper. The pair showed a great turn of pace in the jump off to blast through the finish with a treble clear in 37.88 seconds. Second place was filled by 12 year-old Madison Heath from Nantwich, Cheshire riding The Jacaloupe, a 17 year-old strawberry roan gelding owned by Graham Heath. This partnership took their place on the podium with a treble clear in 39.68 seconds.

Thomas Francis-Jones, aged 12, from Brackley, Northamptonshire scooped third place on Kiltormer Hero, a 13 year-old grey gelding owned by Amanda Francis-Jones. Three clears rounds from this combination in 42.63 seconds ensured that they had done enough to book their place at the Horse of the Year Show.
