Robert Oliver clinched his second tricolour of the week at the Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) with Simone Cuddys The Duke.
The nine-year-old bay gelding was bought at Brightwells Sales four years ago, and since then, hes been highly successful in lightweight cob classes with Yasmin Cuddy, Claire Oliver and Robert.
He is a great character, and one of the yard favourites, said Robert.
Taking the reserve was the 2006 defending champion So Smart who was ridden by Robert Walker.
Vicky Hesford clinched the intermediate championship riding Marshbrook Sir George, who headed his large show riding type section.
As Vicky is in her final intermediate year, this was her last ride on the quality eight-year-old who is jointly owned by his breeder Wendy Lloyd and Vickys mother Dianne Hesford.
Sunday’s supreme ridden horse championship is turning out to be a real family affair, as Vicky and Marshbrook Sir George join two more family members vying for those final honours — sister Sarah, and her husband Robert Walker also have the coloured and hack champions So Smart and Silent Words II through to the final supreme.
Horse & Hound columnist Katie Jerram took the Integrated Packaging small hunter title riding Vanessa Ramms Irish bred Temple Bready Fearnot.
Bought this spring, the five-year-old qualified with his owner on his debut at Yorkshire Sport Horse Show.
Were all totally shocked. Hes never seen anything like this, but he behaved beautifully said Katie.
Show hunter pony championship
Having stood second here last year, Jack Starkie and Tony and Alison Georgakiss Yealand Angelina clinched the Bewley Homes championship.
The eight-year-old chestnut mare, who headed her 133cm class is in her second season with Jack.
A lovely pony, a cracking jockey — a very nice overall picture, said Peter Molloy, who judged four strong classes with Tom Best.
