Harry Bateman heads the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Second Round at Pyecombe Horse Show
Wednesday 11 July 2018
The sun was shining once again at Pyecombe Horse Show in West Sussex yesterday and it certainly shone down on Harry Bateman, who headed an ultra-competitive Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Second Round.
The sixty-one starting combinations were all completely focused on taking home one of the two direct qualifying tickets on offer for the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship Final at Horse of the Year Show in October. Eighteen talented combinations were able to access the jump off and that was where the battle for top spot unfolded.
Harry, who is based in Hockley, Essex, delivered the win in this second round on board Anvils Every Little Helps, a 10 year-old bay mare owned by Poppy Rollit-Mason. The pair stormed their way to victory when they secured a treble clear in just 35.19 seconds.
With the top two taking the direct qualifying tickets for the Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship Final, the combinations in third to sixth took home the chance to compete at the British Showjumping National Championships.
