Yoshiaki Oiwa made history as the first Japanese rider to seal victory at Bramham with a clear showjumping round. On board 10-year-old gelding Calle 44, Yoshi rose from third place after the cross-country to take the title.

Cross-country leader, Gemma Tattersall and Quicklook V, had the back rail of the triple bar down, plus one time-fault which dropped them to second place.

Australian rider Sammi Birch who was third going into the final phase, also had a fence down on Hunter Valley II, but they maintained their overall position.

Toshiyuki Tanaka rose from 35th after the dressage thanks to a speedy clear across country on Talma D Allou, to eventual fourth, incurring just one time-fault around a tough showjumping track.
Sponsored rider Nicola Wilson, who was fifth going into the final phase riding One Two Many had two fences down, resulting in an overall 8th position.

Under 25's CCI***

22 year old Will Furlong held onto his cross-country lead to take the Bishop Burton College CCI3* under-25 title after a dramatic showjumping phase. Even more impressive, this was Will's first CCI3*!

The pair won by 2.6 penalties over Gina Ruck and Rehy Too who jumped a beautiful clear round to hold second place. Alicia Hawker and Charles RR finished a very credible 3rd.




CIC***

A speedy cross country round by Izzy Taylor and Dr Patricia Turner's 12 year old, Trevidden, paid off in the CIC3* enabling them to finish on a score of 47.4 and take top of the podium.

Second went to Paul Tapner and the three-star specialist Yogi Bear VIII, who jumped a double clear, to finish on a score of 51.2.

Third went to New Zealand's Tim Price, who produced a very classy double clear on Cekatinka. Tim has recently taken on the ride of this mare when his wife Jonelle fell pregnant. Something says he may be a little reluctant to give Jonelle the horse back when she returns to competition!

We would like to say a very well deserved well done to all competitors at the 2017 Equi Trek Bramham Horse Trials. Take a look at some of the super action shots taken by K2 Photographic plus some videos of the Suregrow Kidney Ponds on our galley page.
