It was a day to remember for Essex Hunt North Pony Club member Ella Caton, after she won the Devoucoux Eventers Challenge 2016.
Ella who's aged 17 from Thaxted was in the top four in the whole of East Anglia, after scoring points for attending rallies and representing her Pony Club in Eventing competitions. Her prize was to spend the day with her horse Rocky training with international event rider Piggy French at her stunning yard in Northamptonshire. Piggy was European Silver Medal winner 2009, a member of the British WEG squad 2010, member of the medal winning European Championship team 2011 and a past Young Rider team gold medal winner and U25 Champion.
The day capped an amazing year for Ella who won her section at the Calvert Cup in June and then went on to win the Novice Eventing Championships held in Cheshire, as part of an Essex Hunt North Team in August.
