Kate Attlee was in top form at Myerscough Premier League (7-9 March), winning four out of seven classes, including the entire big tour.
Ann Willett’s Teutone II warmed up with a win in the intermediaire II, delighting the audience at Saturday’s gala evening with his freestyle, before majoring in the grand prix.
“Everyone said it would take a year to get to know Teutone properly and, 12 months on, it feels like we’ve got a partnership now,” said Kate, whose other win came in the prix st georges (PSG) music on Sarah Outwin’s Lochness.
Kate rode Teutone in a snaffle to win the intermediaire II, before switching to the double for the music and grand prix.
Gemma Green also left Myerscough with more than one winner, taking victories on both Showtime and Legemento. Showtime, the reigning advanced medium and medium winter champion, won both the PSG and intermediaire I. Legemento won the Shearwater Young Horse National Five-Year-Old class, beating Carl Hester’s Valegro ridden by Charlotte Dujardin.
