Stars brave the rain and impress at Sheepgate Premier League

Stars brave the rain and impress at Sheepgate Premier League

The sun may have been hiding behind rain clouds and the arenas had their fair share of watering, but the stars were definitely out in force for Sheepgate’s annual Premier League competition (20 – 21 June 2016).

At the Lincolnshire venue, it was Steph Croxford who reigned supreme in the LeMieux Grand Prix. Aboard her own 11-year-old British-bred gelding Mr Hyde, Steph rode to victory in both Grand Prix classes over the course of the two-day competition, scoring 69.20% and 70.90%. This is the second time the pair has claimed top trumps in the Big Tour class at Sheepgate, as last year they won with an equally solid mark of 69.53%.

Another combination to brave the rain and do the double was Derbyshire-based Sonia Baines and her partner, 11-year-old son of Stedinger, Sirius Black III. Scoring impressive marks of 71.75% and 70.31%, the pair claimed both Fairfax Saddles PSG classes and booked their ticket to the final at the LeMieux National Championships at Stoneleigh in September.

After a blip in the Monarch Equestrian Inter II on day one – we’ll blame the weather! – by day two, Yorkshire lass Becky Moody and Carinsio were back to their on-form ways with a win in the second Inter II class. After securing qualification for the Nationals at Inter I earlier in the year, Becky and the nine-year-old Painted Black-sired gelding claimed their place in the Monarch Equestrian Inter II Championship with a strong 71.62%.

Highest score of the competition was attained in one of the crowd-favourite music classes. The accolade went to Hannah Esberger-Hancock and Joanne Byrne’s 11-year-old Westfalen gelding Leonidas III who scored a whopping 72.83% in the Nupafeed Advanced Medium Freestyle, claiming the win and a personal best.
