HORSE OF THE YEAR SHOW SUCCESS
Congratulations to Eugenie Godfrey-Faussett who continues her riding success on the unstoppable and loveable Lolli.
Year 4 pupil, Janey (Eugenie) has two ponies on which she competes nationwide, Lolli and Sooty. Janey worked incredibly hard and successfully competed in the qualifiers for the prestigious Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) held at the NEC last month.
Janey qualified both of her ponies for the Horse of the Year Show. She won the Cheshire County Show with Lolli, qualifying for the Carrs BMW Lead Rein of Hunter Type Championship class. She also won the National Pony Society Championship Show with Sooty, qualifying for the Price Family First Ridden Pony of the Year class.
Competing at Horse of the Year Show, known as “The World’s Most Famous Horse Show”, is widely regarded as the pinnacle of achievement in the equestrian world. It is a goal to which all owners and riders aspire.
During Horse of the Year Show (HOYS), 29 Championship classes cover the most popular of British breeds and types, with the respective Champions going forward to contest for the Show’s most prestigious titles, the Supreme Horse of the Year and Supreme Pony of the Year.
Qualifying classes are held up and down the country between March and September each year. Tens of thousands of competitors set out each year to gain a coveted finalist place for HOYS, yet only 1% make it. Visitors to the show can be assured that the horses and riders standing before them will be some of the most talented in the UK.
Lolli (show name Gryngallt Picture Frame) won her championship and got to take part in the SUPREME PONY OF THE YEAR title in the main Genting Arena. Mr Titley, Head of Warminster Prep congratulated Janey and said “We know how hard Janey has worked over the past couple of years and her determination and hard work has really paid off. A great achievement – well done Janey from all of us at Warminster!”
