The 128cm Championship

The 128cm Championship

Amy Morris made the long journey from Scotland exceptionally worthwhile as she launched Sunday’s action at Horse of the Year Show with a fine victory in the 128cm Pony Championship.


Amy, who is from the Borders, guided 14-year-old black mare Madonna to an emphatic victory at the Genting Arena in Birmingham. She was joined in the jump-off by just one other combination – Aimee Jones and Koda – from 22 starters. With Aimee clocking a time of 50.14 seconds, the pressure was then on Amy to deliver, but she produced a stylish performance, going clear in 45.80 seconds.


“It is an amazing feeling,” said 12-year-old Amy. “I qualified both of my ponies at the same qualifier in May, and I have been really looking forward to coming here.  I didn’t want to go too fast in in the jump-off in case I had a pole down, and she jumped really well. I am delighted.


“It means a lot to me to win here. I have always wanted to jump at Horse of the Year Show, and I had a lot of friends and family here to watch.”
