National Champions

Every year, the summer season comes to an exciting climax when we crown our national champion. Lorna Johnstone dominated through the fifties, sixties and early seventies with 13 titles, before dressage doyenne Jennie Loriston-Clarke claimed eight of her own, while in recent times Carl Hester made it number ten in 2019.
