Alice Ellison heads the Horseware Bronze League Semi Final at The College Equestrian Centre, Keysoe
Tuesday 07 August 2018
Alice Ellison booked her place at Horse of the Year Show with victory in the Horseware Bronze League Semi Final at The College Equestrian Centre, Keysoe in Bedfordshire, with Britney IV.
A total of forty-two competitors chased after the much-yearned for seven Horse of the Year Show tickets on offer with twenty-three producing initial clears over course-designer Dave Conway’s 12-fence course to get one step closer to their goal. A further ten fell by the wayside in round two to leave thirteen for a hotly-contended jump-off.
It was Alice Ellison’s day. Cambridgeshire based Alice found all the shortcut options on Sacha Ellison’s 12-year-old Indoctro daughter Britney to gallop ahead and win by 0.49 seconds.
The lucky riders placed second to seventh also claim a finalist place in the Horseware Bronze League Final at the Horse of the Year Show at Birmingham’s NEC between the 3rd – 7th October.
