There was strong competition in the showing classes at the The Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby Meeting, with many of the country’s leading show riders and producers competing.
In the beautiful sunshine the top horse and rider combinations contested a wide range of classes, which were sponsored by Alltech for a third year running.
The competition was fierce with a number of Horse of the Year Show qualifier tickets on offer.
Jayne Ross and Casino retained the Alltech Small Riding Horse, with the Alltech Supreme Riding Horse Championship going to Allister Hood riding Diamonds Are Forever III, after the pair were victorious in the Alltech Large Riding Horse.
The Alltech Supreme Hunter Championship also went to Jayne Ross riding the imposing Bloomfield Valhalla, following their win in the The Alltech Middleweight Hunter.
Georgia Aungier, riding Fielden The Real MCCoy, was on impressive form in the CHAPS qualifiers, taking the Alltech CHAPS UK Non-Native Open In-Hand, before securing the Alltech Supreme Coloured Horse In-Hand Championship.
Alltech’s UK Marketing Manager, Isla Baker-Browne was in attendance to present the prize in the iconic main international arena to Jordan Cook, winner of the Alltech Supreme Hack Championship on-board Fleetwater Xecutive.
Said Isla: “Walking into the iconic Hickstead main arena to present the prize was such an honour. The whole day was just wonderful from start to finish and we couldn’t have been looked after better.”
