‘Careful as a cat with the heart of a lion’: golden Gina secures Scottish hat-trick at Aintree *H&H Plus*

Emma Crawford and Gina Gold secure a hat-trick for Scotland — and a hat-trick for mares — on the opening day of the British Showjumping Indoor Championships at Aintree. Find out more about why the jump-off course was so influential and the planning and preparation that gave Emma and “Gina” the edge in their winning round...

Scotland ended the first day of the British Showjumping Indoor Championships on a full house of titles, with Fife-based Emma Crawford completing the nation’s hat-trick with a win in the Speedi-Beet Grade C finals.

Emma and the nine-year-old Gina Gold, owned by Louise and Graham Davies, were the penultimate combination to go in the 14-strong jump-off.

Mark McGowan’s course proved challenging, with just two double clears ahead of Emma and “Gina” — fast rounds from Mark Edwards and Ede Peasy, lying provisional second, and Richard Howley with Matrone VD Donkhoeve, who were holding the lead.
