The second of the 2022 Cavago-sponsored Associated Championships took place on 09 - 13 November at Vale View Equestrian in Leicestershire. With 127 sections and 62 titles to be won, the five-day show displayed the breadth of talent across the variety of competitors taking part in BD competition.

Claire Ballantyne and Dvorak

Veteran Rider Championships
Seven championship titles, from Intro to PSG, were awarded in these popular classes for riders over the age of 55. The highest-scoring veteran rider win came courtesy of List 1 Judge, Claire Ballantyne from Staffordshire and her eight-year-old gelding, Dvorak (pictured above). The duo, who placed fourth in the Advanced Medium Silver at this year’s LeMieux National Championships at Somerford Park, rode a super test to win the Veteran Rider Advanced Medium Gold section plus the championship title on a score of 72.16%.

“It was a lovely championship, and my horse (Dvorak) went very well,” said Claire. “I was there for three days and found it a lovely show to be a part of.

“I also have Dvorak’s full sister at home,” continued Claire. “Both horses are home-bred – they’re out of my former small tour mare Fame (by Florestan) and by De Niro.”

Judy Bradwell and Akolien

Veteran Horse Championships 15-19 years
Veteran horses aged 15-19 impressed in the 17 classes on offer for horses of this age group. The combination to attain the top score amongst the championship winners was Judy Bradwell and her talented Dutch mare, Akolien – winners of the Elementary title on an outstanding score 73.31%. Judy and Akolien (pictured above) also claimed Veteran Horse 15-19 years Novice Championship and the Veteran Rider Novice and Elementary titles, making it a phenomenal four wins out four classes entered.

“She’s an amazing mare,” said Judy about the Karandasj-sired 17-year-old who she sourced from the Netherlands eight years ago. “She’s incredibly consistent and she also has the most amazing temperament, which is important as I have two replacement knees so have to be very careful dismounting.”

Judy, a List 2A Judge, notably won Burghley Horse Trials in 1970, at the age of just 21, and is also a New Zealand Selector. “Akolien is a full sister to Wesko who won Luhmühlen [Horse Trials] with Tim Price,” explained Judy. “Akolien herself has been evented by several of my pupils, with Noah Brook starting her off at BE100 in 2014.”

Judy trains with Paul Fielder and is relishing being back in the arena after a six-year break from competition. “I did quite a lot of dressage when I was younger – up to PSG and Inter I – then carried on producing young horses. I hadn’t competed for six years and was busy supporting everyone else eventing, then saw the Veteran Championships and it gave me a goal, which is fantastic.”

Lois Seymour and Diorissimo

Veteran Horse Championships 20+ years
The Preliminary Silver-winning combination of Lois Seymour and her 20-year-old gelding, Diorissimo (pictured above), made their mark as the highest-scoring pair in the veteran horse championships 20+ category with a test earning 73.02%. Lois, a winner in the inaugural side saddle classes with Diorissimo (stable name ‘Dylan’) at the first of the 2022 Cavago Associated Championships, once again donned her habit and side saddle, to win the title here.

“I am really proud of him,” said Lois, who combines riding with her work as a Freight Forwarding Import Coordinator. “I chose to ride the veteran championship side saddle to show that just because a horse is older, it doesn’t mean you can’t teach them new things. He (Dylan) was 15 when I first started riding him side saddle.”

Lois was just 14 when she started riding side saddle herself, as she explains; “My mum didn’t know what to get me for my 14th birthday, so she bought me a ‘have a go’ session with my Connemara pony. I then showed him side saddle for four years. I love the history and tradition aspect of it. I now ride on a saddle that’s 123 years old!”

Lois trains with Clare Ashley and Pippa Doran. She has owned Diorissimo (Demonstrator x Concorde), a former hunt horse who was also shown at county level, for six years. “It was after a serious accident, when I was recovering battered and bruised on the sofa, that I spotted him advertised. He’s so special, he’s such a gent, but also a bit of a diva! He loves to show off.”

Daniel Kaiser and Liberty USA

Forces Equine Championships
Designed for riders in HM Forces, Government Services, Public Services and their dependents, the Forces Equine Championships continue to grow in popularity. Novice Bronze winner Danielle Kaiser, with her 14-year-old British-bred mare Liberty USA (pictured above), recorded the highest Forces Equine score of 71.88%.

“I was absolutely delighted. I feel like I’m a privilege passenger to ride her (Liberty USA),” said Danielle who, as the wife of a Specialist Paramedic for East Midlands Ambulance Service, qualifies to compete in this championship. “My husband Chris had to provide some childcare for our five-year-old daughter, so I went on my own, but parked next to some lovely people who were so supportive and fun.”

Liberty USA is bred to showjump, by the stallion It’s The Business who partnered Geoff Glazzard to international success. “We got her from Matt Pike, a lovely dealer in Sussex. We did a bit of unaffiliated, then Chris and I got married and had a child, so we just hacked for a long while. After moving to Lincolnshire last June, I did a one-day-event in October then started affiliated dressage in January this year.

“She’s got the best canter, her canter work is her strong point, so I train things in the canter,” says Danielle about the lovely chestnut mare who is known at home as ‘Lexi’. “On the day, I was so pleased with her particularly her attitude. It was very windy, but she focused on me and was a pro in the arena.”

Kathryn Pickering and Pop the Champers

RoR Championships
Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) is British Horseracing’s official charity for the welfare of horses who’ve retired from racing. They do invaluable work promoting the versatility and adaptability of racehorses following their retirement from the track, as evidenced here at Vale View with the many former racehorses showcasing their dressage skills. Wendy Wesley’s Pop the Champers was skillfully ridden by Kathryn Pickering to win the Prelim Gold on the highest RoR score of 70.73%. Kathryn and ‘Pops’ (pictured above), who won the Ideal Saddles Prelim 18/80cm Combined Training Championship in 2020, have an impressive competition record since the gelding’s retirement from the track in 2019.

“He did the Novice class first where he was spooky and a bit silly, but in the Prelim he really knuckled down and went well,” said Kathryn, who runs an event, dressage and livery yard from her Lincolnshire base and trains with Victoria Jones in Stamford. “It was windy, but I think the ex-racehorses benefit as they experience everything during their racing careers and cope well with weather conditions.”

Kathryn became acquainted with the 11-year-old bay gelding when he was in training with Nick Kent in Brigg, where she rides out a couple of times a week. At the time, he showed all the qualities of a useful competition horse, and she describes him as a “great advert for the Thoroughbred”.

“He wasn’t fussed about racing, but dressage is his forte. It’s like he’s already read the dressage rule book. He’s a beautiful, well put together horse and he gives everything a good go.”

Jane Green and Hacendado XVI

GBPRE Championships
The GBPRE Championships for Pura Raza Española (PRE) horses and part-breds brought a taste of Spain to Vale View. PRE horses have a history steeped in the military and classical dressage. Athletic movement alongside natural ability for the advanced movements has earned this breed success on the international stage, and their popularity extends beyond their native Spain.

Fresh from competing at the MCI European Championships in Belgium, top scorer across all levels was the winning Prix St Georges Gold combination of Jane Green with her 10-year-old stallion Hacendado XVI (by Zeusli) - pictured above. The pair delivered an assured performance for 71.03%.

“I am delighted,” said Jane afterwards. “We’d just got back from Belgium where we were second in the PSG at the MCI European Championships, so were both a little tired, but I was delighted with his test. He's really quite confident at PSG now.”

Freelance trainer and former Grand Prix rider Jane describes Hacendado, who stands just 15hh, as a pocket rocket and a real trier. “He’s the first Iberian horse I’ve had to train up, and I’ve had him since he was four. I’d actually retired from competing, then bought this little horse as he perhaps might not be such a physical ride. At the beginning of 2021, friends persuaded me to go out competing. He’s a super little horse and is always competitive in the gold section.”

Caroline Shrubb and Enriqueta

Part-Bred GBPRE Championships
Of the GBPREs’ part-bred relatives, it was Preliminary Bronze combination of Caroline Shrubb and her own Enriqueta (pictured above), who hail from Surrey, that achieved the accolade of top score (69.05%). Spanish-born Enriqueta, who is 22 years young, is a PRE x Anglo Arab mare and has been competing BD since 2020.

“On the very first day we had our win… the next day (competing in the veteran horse championship) she refused to accept that she’s a veteran!” smiled Caroline wryly.

“She’s very much a late starter, and in the past has had other ideas about submission. Last year however, our scores got better and good enough to consider doing dressage full-time. She’s now come into her dressage prime.”

Enriqueta was purchased by Caroline, who works as an accountant, 16 years ago, as she explains; “I imported her in 2007 from Spain, where I spent my gap year. There were plenty of horses to ride, but I wanted my own horse – my own project, and I later brought her back with me. She’s a monkey. We’ve done mainly Riding Club, one-day-events, endurance – all different things, including some polo.

“We train with Suzanne Holt, focusing on the correct education. The lateral work really helps her and she’s going from strength to strength,” continued Caroline. “She is so full of life and doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of age.”

Anne Jones and Niquel Del Drac

Lusitano Championships
The PRE’s Portuguese cousin, the Lusitano, was represented from Prelim to Prix St Georges at Vale View. Originally bred for bullfighting and classical dressage, the Lusitano, with its talent for collection and powerful paces, is a great partner for competitive dressage. Preliminary Gold winners Anne Jones and her newly acquired five-year-old gelding Niquel Del Drac (by Capote del Lyw) - pictured above - shone bright to post the top score of 70.60%.

“I was thrilled with Niquel,” commented Anne. “We only bought him in July, then he had a month off after he was gelded, so we’re a very new partnership. He’s a little angel, especially considering he was a late foal, born 3 November, so has only just turned five.

“Despite only training together for a matter of weeks, I was keen to compete at the Cavago Associated Championships, so I rushed off to Hunters [Equestrian] to get qualified, which he did easily,” continued Anne. “He is such a straightforward horse - sharp but in a nice way - and all he wants to do is please you. He is such an obliging horse and I’m looking forward to working up the grades and seeing how far we can go.”

Anne trains with Emile Faurie, although Emile is yet to meet her newest ride, and she worked for Peter Storr for 13 years when he was based in Ascot. “When Peter moved to Broadway, I went freelance, and I now run a small livery yard in Wiltshire.”

Trish Wright and Redondel

Part-Bred Lusitano Championships
Trish Wright, from Shropshire, enjoyed a highly successful show with her 17-year-old Lusitano, Redondel II (pictured above). Winners of the Advanced Medium Bronze and Medium Silver on scores of 63.97% and 64.22% respectively, they also claimed the championship title at both levels.

“Redondel is golden inside and out,” said Trish about her delightful palomino stallion. “I have a good agent in Spain and bought him unseen, which I’d never done before, but he’s proved to be fabulous stallion. He’s so capable yet so straightforward, and hacks alone as well as with mares. He's a wonderful and very obliging horse.

“He wasn’t competed in Spain, but he piaffes and passages and has so much potential,” continued Trish, who trains with Carl Hester. “I used to have warmbloods, but the intelligence, willingness and kindness of the Iberian breeds, which I’ve been riding for seven years now, has really won my heart.”

About the Cavago Associated Championships, Trish says, “They (Vale View Equestrian) ran a fantastic show. The team did a fantastic job of making sure everything ran smoothly across the many classes.”

Yasmin Wright and Salubrious

Thoroughbred Championships
Catering for all Thoroughbreds including those who haven’t raced, the Thoroughbred Championships attracted competitors from Intro to Advanced Medium, and it was Elementary Bronze winner Yasmin Wright with her own Salubrious (pictured above) who topped the charts with a super score of 71.81%.

Yasmin and her 15-year-old Irish gelding also claimed the Medium title on 70.00%, together with the RoR Elementary Championship (69.91%), to complete a show to remember for the Hampshire duo.

“This season has been a real comeback,” said Yasmin. “Three or four days before this championship last year, he [Salubrious] fractured his cannon bone, resulting in a lot of time off. Then all summer this year, things weren’t going very well. He was on and off with performance – he just wasn’t himself - so we had it investigated and my vet picked up a gut infection.

“After finishing his seven-day treatment, we went on a hack then an arena hire at Quob Stables and he felt amazing! He was a different horse,” she explained. “The following day I thought ‘I’m going to Vale View!'. He travelled well and was a gentleman from start to finish. It was a magical show for us.”

As a racehorse, Salubrious was in training with Paul Nicholls, and Yasmin has owned him for two years. “We are best friends. I’m learning, he is learning, and he is so good for what he is. This year we’ve won the RoR Elementary Horse Award and I’m really looking forward to going to Newmarket in January for the awards night hosted by Clare Balding.”

Zoe Ryan and Bella 15

CHAPS Championships
The Coloured Horse and Pony Society (CHAPS) associated championships were well supported, with a wealth of strikingly marked equine athletes putting their best foot forward. Of the five champions crowned in the CHAPS category, the Prelim Bronze victor, Zoe Ryan, posted the highest score of 72.67% with her seven-year-old British-bred piebald mare, Bella 15 (pictured above).

This combination has also achieved much success this season in the Saracen Horse Feeds Quest series, finishing runners-up in the My Quest Open Preliminary Championship last month.

"This was our first time competing at the CHAPS Associated Championships and what a well run and welcoming Championships it was," commented Zoe. "My little mare, Bella 15 was only broken in during lockdown 2020 and this is our first year competing BD.

"Bella 15, known as Fug Bug, is a little mare with a huge heart," continued Zoe. "She always tries her hardest for me and I'm so proud of how much she's achieved in such a short period of time. Fug is proving to be a fantastic unaffiliated eventer and has now shown she may also want to be a dressage diva too.

"I want to thank BD and sponsor Cavago once again for a fantastic Championships and I look forward to hopefully returning next year."

Congratulations to the prize-winning combinations and to everyone who took part. British Dressage thanks generous sponsor Cavago and the team at Vale View for hosting a fantastic event to conclude the 2022 Cavago Associated Championships series.
