The Price is right as Black Jacko WINS the jackpot!

The British Pony Championships (aged 16 years and under riding ponies of 14hh – 14.2hh) was undoubtedly the highlight of this year’s Belsay and provided plenty of thrills and spills, especially on cross country day.  After a tense final of show jumping on Saturday, where less than once fence separated the top four riders, Anna Price from Bedfordshire was crowned British Champion on her pony Black Jacko with a final score of 36.2.

Joining her on the podium were 2nd placed Wiltshire based Maisy Spratt, riding Cumbrian John Thornton’s Sycamore Lad (previously a medal winning team GB pony with Molly Faulkner in 2017) and 3rd placed Ivy Fisher from Norfolk riding her 17 year old pony Smokey Diamond, another pony well known on the pony trials circuit.
