Stephen Hague’s Cyrils Brigade won the working hunter qualifier at Addington.

The 18hh Irish gelding was ridden by Stephen’s son, Christopher, 25, who works on his family’s farm in Stockport.

“Cyrils Brigade has a lovely disposition and a great jump”, said Christopher’s mother, Karen.

Christopher has ridden since childhood and plans to hunt with the North East Drag Hunt next year.
