Well, a very busy week for the team with 18 horses at Bicton Arena, but a very successful one. The highlight
ht was Billy Dash ridden by Lottie Tutt delivering three sensational rounds to secure a coveted ticket to the prestigious HOYs in the Newcomer’s Second Round! We were extremely proud to see that of the 6 to make it through to the third round 3 of them were Billys. Billy Fu and Lucy Townley put on a fantastically fast performance, so our hearts broke when the final fence fell costing them the win, but they finished a very respectful 5th just behind Billy Santorini and Pippa in 3rd. Pippa also finished 5th in the Foxhunter Second Round on Lizzie Bunn’s Auction bought Billy Mufasa. Lucy also enjoyed clear rounds in the 1.40ms on William’s Derby ride Dublon while he’s abroad. Many clear rounds were jumped by all the young horses who all thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful grass arena on offer at Bicton, so thank you to the show for running such a lovely event.
William enjoyed his week at Ommen jumping clear rounds on all of his team with the highlight being placed on Equine America Billy Marmite in the CSI3* 1.45m. Chantilly CSI4* this week for William so fingers crossed they have another good show!
