Mischa Irving wins the SEIB Winter Novice Championship Title
Wednesday 21 July 2021
The drive from Lanarkshire to West Sussex was definitely worthwhile for Lanark based Mischa Irving when she won the SEIB Winter Novice Championship title in the iconic international grass arena at Hickstead.
Riding her 8 year-old grey gelding I Sir Marcus she took the win by being the fastest of the two jump-off clears that contested the seven-strong jump-off. Their incredibly fast clear saw them stop the clock just over a second faster than their nearest rival in the form of Nicole Lockhead-Anderson with Kate Betteridge’s 6 year-old bay gelding Kingston Star.
The Final today brought to a close the Winter Novice Championship which had started for Mischa in October at Aintree Equestrian Centre before contesting her second one in April this year when she qualified for the Final by winning the direct qualifier at the Cabin Equestrian Centre.
