Last weekend saw the third annual Horseheath Horse Trials, with over 450 competitors taking part in the BE affiliated event. 

One competitor making her mark on the course was Indie Vaughan-Jones, who's a working pupil at Ros Canter's yard. 

Indie, who has evented up to 2* level, won with her ride Cool Blue (owned by Annie Borrett) in the BE90 Section G. 

Another young rider having great success at the event was 16-year old Summer Nicholls, who won the BE100 Section A with Alfie XXVI.

Summer's win means she can now compete in the BE100 regional final. From there, she's hoping to qualify for the Mitsubishi Motors Cup, held annually at Badminton Horse Trials.

Horseheath also had a number of ‘Wobbleberries’ competing on Sunday in the BE80(T) class. T

he Wobbleberry challenge is described by the Willberry Wonder Pony Charity as “a challenge for middle-aged, wimpy riders to compete in a BE80(T) class by Autumn 2017 and raise as much money as possible”.

Helen Kinsella riding Farmers Hill Aristokat was the highest placed rider completing the challenge.

She was rewarded with a video of her cross country round from ‘An Eventful Life’.

The entry charge at Horseheath is donated to two local charities and this year the beneficiaries were East Anglian Air Ambulance and Maggie’s Centre Cambridge.
