Lily_Grimwade_-_128cm_Championship_in_Style_at_HOYS_low_res.jpgThe first of the National Show Jumping classes on Saturday 10th of October at Horse of the Year Show featured the youngest show jumpers of the Show, and some small but mighty ponies in the 128cm Championship.

When the competition drew to a close it was Danbury's 12-year-old Lily Grimwade riding Koda who were crowned the winners.

This was Grimwade’s Horse of the Year Show debut and she made it in style being the only rider to go clear in the jump off.

Grimwade was elated with her win “I am really surprised and really happy. He has taught me how to ride basically and I love him so much” she said.

Second place was awarded to Madison Heath riding Red Alert III and rounding out the podium places was Claudia Moore riding Peppino Il Grande.
