Mattie Lanni Heads Children on Horses at Bolesworth
Wednesday 14 August 2019
Fifteen-year-old Mattie Lanni riding the talented mare Dream Du Toultia Z headed the Gaskells Waste sponsored Children on Horses class on the first day of the Equitop Bolesworth Young Horse Championship Show.
The unstoppable pair produced a clear round in an impressive time of 34.18 seconds with the Darco mare showing her ability in the Castle Arena.
The partnership showcased their strength in the jump-off with a polished performance, a time-saving turn to fence two saw her get the second round off to a fast-paced start.
Said the Peterborough-based rider: “I have had Dream Du Toultia Z since November and absolutely love her, she is a star and we really have formed a great bond.
“She is seven now and we could have contested the age classes but dad felt we should aim for the Children on Horses classes and I am glad we did.
“We have had just four fences down in countless rounds this year, she is super careful, a real trier and a natural competitor.”
Coming home in second was Isabel Saywell and Con Chilli, the 14-year-old bay mare, crossing the line in 36.67 seconds, losing time when a sharp turn to fence five saw the pair come to a sudden halt before getting their round underway again.
Just behind was Jasmin Clark with Bellelulu D’aubigny, their fast moving clear, taking a wider route for third place much to her delight.
