At a sun-drenched Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show, Eve Jobs, daughter of the late Apple founder, Steve, had the biggest win of her career in the world of showjumping.
Bolesworth International held in the stunning estate with the castle providing a breath-taking backdrop, is well known for attracting global show jumping stars and Eve is quickly becoming a name to remember for results as well as the family cache!
Said a delighted Eve: “I train with Eddie Macken, Ben Hey and Sasha Coleman. Ben and Sasha have been with me since I was six-years-old. I started training with Eddie last November and he’s wonderful – I’m very lucky to be training with him.
“My four years competing at international level have been amazing, I’ve got to travel to so many amazing places and it’s been fun.”
Just 18-years-old, the diminutive star set the international arena alight in amazing form to win the feature CSI4* 1.45m Speed Class sponsored by Country Frog on the penultimate day of this immaculate event.
With valuable Longines Ranking on offer, a world-class field of 56 competitors came forward to the International Arena where under clear blue skies and temperatures touching 30°C, the competition promised to be just as intense.
Jobs, on her CSI4* debut produced one of the most impressive rounds of the day with her 10-year-old gelding Charleville and a final time of 68.17 seconds saw her go straight to the top of the leader board having knocked 12 seconds off the target time.
‘I thought people would be faster than I was but I made short turns and went as fast as I could,’ said Eve after her win.
‘Charleville is wonderful and such a fighter, he always wants to win.’
‘I’d heard such great things about Bolesworth and what Nina Barbour has done that I just had to come. It’s beautiful here and the weather has been amazing.”
