Suffolk’s Sam Ward wins the British Horse Feeds Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Qualifier at the South of England Show

The South of England Show in Haywards Heath, West Sussex played host to a British Horse Feeds Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Qualifier and with a huge seventy starters, there was plenty of action for the spectators. Keeping his cool, Sam Ward rode a convincing double clear to take top spot. 

 

With three qualification places available for the British Horse Feeds Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show, each combination came forward with the aim of securing a place at the top of the leader board with a double clear.

 

As twenty-four riders jumped clear in round one, it was left up to the all-important clock to decide the winner as they headed into the final jump off.

 

Traveling from Stowmarket in Suffolk, Sam Ward showed a great partnership with Troy III, a 9 year-old bay gelding owned by Michael Bates to secure first place. Posting a clear in the first round, this combination stormed the jump off with a lighting fast round to cross the finish line in 39.93 seconds with a double clear.
