    Georgina Steele rode her beloved gelding Colbeach Mark Of Distinction to shine in the side-saddle concours d’elegance class. In the costume equivalent, the red rosette was awarded to Chantelle Dorton riding her own Wildgoosechase.

    In the part-bred and pure-bred Portuguese ridden ranks, the Lusitano class went to Natasha Read riding Tess Hardy’s Dancarina, while leading Andalusian was Laura Bendel’s Tragus Vdos ridden by George Blackburn.

    Zara Brookes captured the intermediate tri-colour riding her father Nick Brookes’ small show riding type Parkgate Royal Visit William who reigned over Garr Parr and Georgina Wilkes’ ultra-consistent show hunter type Mexican Summer.

    The smallest combination, winning 122cm Annandale Flanders and Oscar Konechny rose to the occasion to scoop the show hunter pony championship, ahead of Olivia Turner riding 143cm Carr Side Kate.

    Jayne Ross rode Kay Cambell’s Casino III to the small riding horse class and subsequent championship, ahead of Frazer Atherden and winning large Kellythorpes Obsession.
