Class by name, Class by nature!
Sponsored rider Oliver Townend clung onto his lead at The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials to take the prestigious four star title with the 10 year old Ballaghmor Class, owned by Karyn Shuter, Angela Hislop and Val Ryan. The win made even more of an achievement by the fact it was the horses first attempt at this level!
Oliver had one fence down and a time-fault but it was enough to seal the win by 1.3 penalties on a horse Oliver has produced from the start of his education. Oliver last took the Bughley title in 2009 on board another grey, Carousel Quest.
Second place went to Piggy French who jumped a clear round to rise from fifth on Vanir Kamira. Gemma Tattersall and Arctic Soul had one fence down, dropping them from second to third. Tom McEwen jumped an immaculate clear round on Toledo De Kerser to take fourth place.
Huge congratulations to Oliver and his team, we are very proud to support such talented riders!
