Gigi rides to victory

The Nexgen Young Event Horse and Pony’s purpose was to find the future eventing champions.

This year Gigi Gough entered Tinker in the 6yr old young event pony class at Coombelands show ground, which we then won qualifying us for the final in September.

The finals took place at Hickstead show ground, with lots of talented riders and ponies. Gigi and Tinker performed exceptionally to win, making them the 6yr Old Young Event Pony champions of 2020.

The class itself consisted of a simple dressage test at the beginning, straight into 8 show jumps then continuing into 9 cross country fences. The ponies were judged on confirmation (how true they are to type), paces, fluency and their potential as an eventer.

Well done to both Gigi and Tinker!
