After a very hectic week showing it was off to Midland Counties for the next set of HOYS qualifiers. The day started very well with Hattie and Thistledown Lawman winning the Lead Rein of Hunter type class. Which means that Hattie is in the very lucky position of having both her RIHS & HOYS tickets for both her ponies in the bag at the beginning of June (even more holidays Catherine – if only we were allowed to go anywhere!) Well Done Hattie.
Florrie and Whiteleaze Debutante were in a huge HOYS Part bred class and finished a very respectable 2nd. We then had 6th-itis in the hunter pony section with Millie and Greendown Mandolin, Victoria and Romanno Fandango and Grace and Scalacre Eclipse.
However we did finish the day off nicely when Florrie rode Jackets Dynasty in the HOYS 138 show pony class to win and then stand section Championship. Congratulations to Florrie who has won the first two HOYS 13.2 qualifiers – not bad for a first ridden jockey!
