Winter Pony Finals Round Up at The Royal International Horse Show, Hickstead

Wednesday 21 July 2021

 

On Day Two of The Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead, and under blue skies, ponies and their riders came together to contest three of the British Showjumping Winter Championship titles.  

First up was the Winter JC Pony Final, where a competitive starting line-up of twenty-five combinations delivered some great showjumping. The pressure of the occasion must certainly have been felt by many of the young riders that came forward but eight managed to put this behind them and deliver a clear round for a place in second round. Using her first draw in the jump off to her advantage13 year-old Izabella Rodgers from Chelmsford, Essex skilfully posted the winning double clear in what proved to be an unbeatable time of 38.08 seconds, on board the 9 year-old bay gelding Neil 55 owned by Nicola Rogers.

Inspired by her sister’s earlier winning way, it was 11 year-old Sophia Rodgers from Chelmsford, Essex who scooped first place in the Winter 128cm Pony Final.
