Millie_Dickinson_-_Squibb_Group_Pony_Foxhunter_low_res.jpgSixteen year old Millie Dickinson made her remarkable debut at Horse of the Year Show by winning the Squibb Group Pony Foxhunter topping the leader board after an exciting jump off.

The prestigious class is a pony version of the famous Horse & Hound Senior Foxhunter Championship, and is open to riders under the age of 16.

Dickinson rode the 10-year-old gelding Claddagh Prince to victory by just 0.02 seconds ahead of Cameron Rogan on Landlord 111 to clinch the win.

This is Dickinson’s first time at HOYS and she has made her presence known coming third in the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Championship on Wednesday and taking the win today.

Dickinson has been eagerly awaiting her chance to shine at HOYS, an ambition she has held for many years.

“I still can’t really believe it, it’s just incredible and it’s basically a dream come true.

“To think that it’s actually happened is amazing” said Dickinson.

Dickinson had two ponies entered in the class, when she rode into the arena on her second ride, Ron Burgandy, she already knew she had won the title.
