Cuddy_In-Hand_Supreme_trot.jpgOwner Martin Wood had reason to celebrate tonight after his win in the prestigious Cuddy Supreme In-Hand Championship with his horse Romanno Royale.

This is the second year in a row Wood has been the owner of the Cuddy Supreme In-Hand winner, last year he won with his British Riding Pony Stallion Rendene Royal Charm.

Romanno Royale was led by Simon Charlesworth from Newmarket. The win is made even more impressive as Romanno Royale has only done one show this season with this being his second.

“Delighted for the owners, Martin Wood, who sent horses to us to be produced for the first time.

“It is what every breeder or buyer of young horses wants to achieve

“It means everything, it’s what everyone works for all year round” said Charlesworth.

There were four fabulous contenders for the title, with Kellythorpes Oo-La-La being awarded Reserve Champion. Kellythorpe Stud had an impressive presence in the strongly contented Championship with two of the four entries.

The Cuddy Working Hunter of the Year Championship displayed incredible talent but ultimately saw Newmarket’s Tim Gredley, ride his sister Pollyanna’s horse, Grand Conan to victory.

 Although the win is an impressive title it provides Tim with a logistical challenge, as by winning he has gained the opportunity to compete for the Supreme title on Sunday, but he’s scheduled to compete abroad .

“It feels great, it’s a little unexpected, but it’s easy when you have a lovely easy horse like Conan.

“It was lovely to have a full house and under the spotlight it was fantastic” said Gredley

The Miniature Horse of the Year Championship was taken by Leonie Holloway-Wroe’s Scott Creek Monarch Red Graffitti. The pair were Reserve Champions in 2014 and have now managed to secure the Championship title.

“He is a horse of a lifetime for me, I am incredibly lucky to have the top stallion in the country” said Holloway-Wroe.

Tradition and elegance also filled the arena in the way of the Sankey Property Maintenance Ltd. Harness Horse and Pony of the Year Championship. The Championship was won by Jessie Dudley Apicella and Aghaderg Stand and Deliver, who put in a beautiful performance against impressive combinations.
