A good ‘Time 2 Reflect’ in the British Show Horse Association Ladies Side Saddle Horse of the Year Championship

It’s a very special year as Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) celebrates its 70th anniversary at Birmingham’s NEC Genting Arena – and there could not have been a better way to start proceedings in the showing than with the outstanding mare, Time 2 Reflect, defending her Ladies Side Saddle Horse of the Year Show title ridden by prolific HOYS winner Jayne Ross.

Jayne has dominated this particular Championship for four years now, with two of Diane Stennett’s horses – the first two years with Hello Dolly – and this win with Time 2 Reflect has once again opened her HOYS campaign in style.

“That’s the best she’s ever gone,” said Jayne, “she went up another level in there. It’s just a fabulous start to the week – anything now is a real bonus.”

Prior to her Side Saddle victories here at HOYS, the 11-year-old bay mare took the Lightweight Show Hunter at HOYS in 2016. “She’s enjoying everything so much,” said Jayne, who was joined in the collecting ring by breeder Sue Rawding for celebrations.

Runner up was Georgina Wilkes’ 10-year-old mare Mexican Summer who deservedly moved up the line from their fourth and fifth placings in 2016 and 2017, respectively. Georgina will be looking forward to watching her ride take to the ring for a second time in the Thistledown Properties Intermediate Show Hunter of the Year on Saturday.
