Twinshock Warrior, Jill Marsden and Tanya Moulden’s stunning Heavyweight Hunter, has fought off all the other Champions to be crowned Supreme Products Supreme Horse of the Year at Horse of the Year Show 2019.
The seven-year-old went beautifully under the spotlights with Jayne Ross, upping his game from his novice appearance last year to Supreme Horse today.
In addition to his sheer quality and showmanship, the gelding is a true hunter and will be out hunting over the winter before coming in again ready for the 2020 show season.
Jill and Tanya first spotted the horse in their neighbour’s field and climbed the fence to get a better look. They’d been searching for a new show horse and it turned out that their neighbour had bought him to hunt. They purchased him as a three-year-old.
“We’ve both believed in him so much and have taken our time with him,” said Jill. “We knew we had to give him to a very special lady and the team [Team Ross] have nurtured him in all the right ways.”
Team Ross have had an incredible week with four horses qualifying for the Supreme Products Supreme Horse of the Year, something that they haven’t come close to since 2009, so it was an emotional win for Jayne who chose Twinshock Warrior for her ride in the Championship.
“I kept thinking any minute that the bubble is going to burst, but it just hasn’t,” said Jayne.
“It’s so difficult to get here, then win a class, and then to go Supreme… so much work goes on behind the scenes.
“They’ve all gone so fantastically and really raised their game.”
